Hi,

I built a website (Wordpress & Woocommerce) for a client a few months ago, and now they are expanding to 4 different countries.

The following will be different for each country
- products,
- product prices,
- product currency,
- content: terms, about, contact
- stockist locator

etc...

What is the best way to manage / set this up.

Would it be easier to manage 4 different websites and use an IP lookup to redirect the customer to the relevant country website, or what would you suggest?

Why not have one website but use country as a top-level category in WooCommerce?

Thanks Jason, however woocommerce is only about 50% of what needs to vary depending on country.

Many other pages and sections need to change too, including slight design tweaks to the header and footer.

In that case, I would consider switching to Network mode and creating each language as its own sub-site of the main site.  You can copy the base theme to each subsite and tweak it from there while retaining control over the WooCommerce installation centrally.

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Usually I do the country based language settings and redirect them to the site using Wordpress & Multi-language plugins. It has good options to setup the texts for all langs.

Thanks guys. If the client decided that they wanted to run 3 separate sites, how or what would be the best way to pickup the users location and redirect them.

Would i need to build something into all 3 htaccess scripts?

Yes, or a PHP script.  Same basic concept...check the browser language and redirect on that condition to the appropriate site. You can also check IP via geolocation but I don't trust that as much as I do language settings.
