Web Shop Manager's (WSM) Location Module
Adding a location for your place of business or places where your products are available will ensure that there is one less barrier between your clients and you! Utilizing the location module also means that your clients are one click away from directions.
The locations module that is featured in the back end of your WSM account can be useful for a variety of different applications. It's up to you how exactly you want to use it, and it will most likely depend on the nature of the business itself. Since the locations module integrates with Google Maps, it is useful for showcasing your physical locations (if you have any) on your contact site page. Manufacturers have also found the locations module to be useful for displaying the different retailers that sell their products, and where they are located.
Steps to add a Location:
- Go to the back end of your WSM
