Companies tend to keep their Facebook pages up to date with the most current store information for their customers. Places syncs that data so you don’t have to manually update your map when someone changes their store hours or location.
If you’re a wholesaler with multi-store dealers, Places lets you search for a brand on Facebook and add all their locations to your map in a single click.
Places will automatically inherit your brand's colors & typography. You can also provide a custom map marker in the settings. For further customization, just provide your own custom CSS.
Places was built from the ground up with performance in mind. We understand how critical load times are for a customer so we’ve employed some of the latest technology to make loading your locations and map super fast. We believe it’s the fastest store locator on the Shopify App Store, and your customers will too.
In today’s mobile world your customers will likely be on the move, they might even be in an area they’re not familiar with. Places has a built in feature that allows your customers to “Use my current location”. This will use their device’s GPS or WiFi to locate them, then search for your nearest locations to them.
Places is integrated with Google Maps and that lets your customers experience an interactive location map. Easily switch between Map and Satellite views. Get Directions (Driving, Transit, Walking, Cycling or Flights).
