In this document, you’ll get an overview of regions and learn about their importance in your ecommerce store.
Regions are essential to your ecommerce store. They allow you to specify available currencies, payment providers, fulfillment providers, tax rates, and more for different regions.
Regions represent different countries that your ecommerce store serves customers in. You can combine more than one country in the same region and give them the same settings, or you can create a different region for each country and add settings specific to each of them.
Currencies in Regions
Each region uses one currency. Having more than one region with each having different currencies allows you to set prices and amounts throughout your ecommerce store for each currency. For example, you can specify prices for a product for each currency you support.
How Customers Use Regions
When a customer browses your storefront, they can choose the region based on their location. Then, different pricing, shipping providers, payment providers, and taxes will be available and applied based on the chosen region.
For example, if you have Stripe enabled as a payment provider in a region created for the United States, but have it disabled in a region created for European countries, only customers in the United States region can use Stripe for payment on checkout.
