WordPress locator plugins are the perfect solution to provide a convenient way for your customers to find your nearest store and the shortest way to get there—especially if your business has multiple locations.
Customers may want intimate contact with a product before they make a purchase online, and a visit to your store provides the opportunity to do so. Not only that, but customers will have fewer inquiries and fewer returns for in-store purchases as compared to online shopping.
Many types of business will be able to benefit from having WordPress locator plugins on their website.
The beauty of these plugins is that they use Google Maps, which has features like zooming, routing, location sharing, and even verbal instructions already built in. Some of these plugins also support WooCommerce, letting you inform customers which items are available in-store and the nearest store which has an item in stock.
In this post, we are going to look at some of the best WordPress locator plugins on CodeCanyon. Let's get started!
