Enable location-based store detection


Dynamics 365 Retail is now Dynamics 365 Commerce - offering comprehensive omnichannel commerce across e-Commerce, in-store, and call center. For more information about these changes, see Microsoft Dynamics 365 Commerce.

This topic describes how to turn on location-based store detection for your Dynamics 365 Commerce site.


Location-based store detection in Commerce lets you provide relevant site content to customers, based on their location. When location-based store detection is turned on, the Commerce rendering service uses the country/region information from the IP address of the customer's web browser to direct the customer to the best geographical site configuration that is available.

Privacy notice

If you turn on the location-based store detection feature, information from the customer's browser is sent to a Microsoft location service. This information is then used to provide the customer content that is relevant to his or her location. Both the information that is sent from the customer's browser and the location-based information that is returned to the customer are subject to privacy and cookie compliance policies.
