Multiple Sites / Content

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.

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.
