Woosmap Store Locator

An enterprise-grade and ready-to-use Store Locator to convert customers from search to stores

Boost in-store demand and foot traffic by quickly displaying the nearest stores, offices or pick-up points.

Store Locator

A highly customisable Store Locator

A highly customisable rendering

Adapt the basemap, colours and icons of your Points of Interest to reflect your brand identity.

Depending on the type of Point of Interest, use your logo or symbols to make it easier for people to locate you.

Personalise your storefronts to improve SEO and visitor retention. Reducing the number of necessary clicks improves your ranking.

The widget is natively responsive design for the mobile web.


Mapping thousands of points

No matter how many points of sale you have, our API has an extremely quick response time at any zoom level, on web and mobile, all while guaranteeing the clarity of all points.

The rendering is smooth and navigation is quicker since your visitor doesn’t need to click to ungroup the cluster of points.


Automatically centre the display on the user's location

Automatically detect your visitor's geographic position to centre your map and display the nearest local points of sale with the appropriate zoom level, without any visitor input.

Display opening hours in real-time, filter by stores currently open and sort by proximity.


Boost the customer journey with One-click search

To reduce the number of clicks, enable auto-completion for city, town and place names, postcodes and addresses around the world.

You can even have the names of your own stores auto-completed once they match the request.


An advanced search

By catchment area

Assign a catchment area to each of your points of sale to guide traffic to the appropriate store.

Close to a route

By integrating our APIs, you can enable searches for your own Points of Interest and display them based on their proximity to a route.

Total uses Woosmap

Unlimited filters to refine your search

Create filters for your data (e.g. services provided at the point of sale) to help to narrow down the search for your retail outlets.

You can define your types, layout (image or text) and use the “open now” option.


Driving directions without leaving your website

With Distance API, your customers can calculate the shortest route from nearest point to another without leaving your website: avoid losing the link with your visitors.

Offer various modes of transport, including walking, driving, cycling…


Call-to-action with location context

By inserting the store’s contact information in a call-to-action button, encourage visitors to book appointments directly with this branch, or provide feedback on a point of sale or even ask a specific store a question.


15 different languages to personalise your Store Locator

Adapt units (metres/miles), operating hours (12- or 24-hour clock) and the language.

Multilingual capabilities: French, English, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Catalan, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Ukrainian, Hebrew and Polish.

A Store Locator is a tool for digital platforms and mobile applications that enables quick and easy search of a store, venue, or any specific location, closer to the user.

Other than the location with the address, you can also add information about your venues such as opening hours, contact information, photos, your website, etc., display all of it on a dynamic map and sort searches by road distance.

The Store Locator API can be implemented without a map and display your stores in a list with the associated information (address, contact, status, logo, photos…).

However, we recommend to display your stores’ location on a map, with markers, as it is more visually enticing and ease the decision making process for users.

With its powerful mapping engine, Woosmap streams all store locations at any zoom level on the map, without limitations, easing the decision making process compared to clustering.

Woosmap also supports clustering that may be useful in situations where there are lots of locations to pinpoint on a map.

You can opt for a ready-to-use Store Locator widget ; this requires limited configuration and can be implemented quickly.

Or you can use Map JS API to build your Store Locator with different bricks for more freedom with the final rendering. We recommend you to use the starter sample to begin the implementation.

It all comes down to your level of customisation.

The Store Locator Widget is primarily designed with configuration and very little coding created thanks to our years of experience in UX for Locators. This helps in faster implementation of a fully functional Store Locator.

However, if you want much more customization or styling options like adding personalised store markers or info windows, the starter sample is the best option for you.

Read our tutorial to configure the Woosmap Store Locator Widget.

You can create a Locator for pick up points by displaying them on a map at the users’ check out or on a product page.

Our API can manage a large number of points and display all of them on a map (either with the Woosmap Widget or with custom made markers - depending on the kind of marker you want).

If you want to go further, adding the Search API allows you to add several attributes for pickup points to make them searchable (examples: open on Sundays or during evenings, compatible with big parcels…).

In addition to your pick up Locator you can add the Distance API to calculate the distance between the user and your locations with Estimated Time of Arrival depending on their mobility.

Carry out statistical analysis with the user events and the data it generates. Events can be defined by the clicks on your contact information, distance calculation, clics on your website and more.

All information is anonymised as we based our activity on the principle of “privacy-first”.
