GeoIP is now a part of Automatic Redirection

On October 20, GeoIP functionality for Plus merchants who currently have the Geoip setting enabled will be rolled into the “Automatic Redirection” setting within Settings -> Preferences. Your pages will automatically adjust to show region-specific content based on your customer’s GeoIP. For example, if your store is example.com with a primary market of the United States and you have an additional market setup for Canada that is set to Primary domain only with CAD enabled, then a Canadian visitor will automatically see CAD pricing. When you have “automatic redirection” activated for your shop with markets set to “primary domain only” or custom domain strategy, non-primary market content is not indexed by search engines to comply with Google guidelines.
