How Does it Work?
⚒️ Our Store Loc’ator Map is powered by data from Google Sheets. So first, you have to install a Google Sheets Addon
🏙️ Then you create a Google sheet and add your store addresses starting from street name, city, country with other details like phone number, email address and store specific information.
🗺️ Once the data is filled, you will run the Google Sheets Addon to generate a Store Loc’ator Link.
✂️ 📋 Copy-Paste the link inside this WordPress plugin and set the path to the page where you want to embed the Store Loc’ator.
That’s all! Store addresses are converted to map coordinates inside Google sheet (longitudes and latitudes). Geo-mapping is done in seconds. If Google sheet doesn’t recognize a store location, you can add the coordinates directly under the “Coordinates” column in the Google Sheet. Store loc’ator works on all mobile devices, tablets and desktops. It’s a 100% responsive and mobile-friendly map.
The co-ordinates in the Google sheet are shown on the map generated by Mapbox. (You don’t have to bother about the hassle of working with Google Maps Platform, or using Google Map API keys or even with Open Street Map with our WordPress plugin). We take care of plotting the points on the map with markers. Map zoom in and map zoom out is available with Mapbox and it moves from marker to marker swiftly.
A search field is added to the map. Users can search on the store loc’ator map by location, ZIP or PIN. They can also search for locations near them with a single click. All stores are listed on the side of the map.
