Country selectors

Orbe ensures that your customers arrive at the correct version of your website based on the country preferences set up on their first visit. However, sometimes they want to change their shipping preferences for various reasons.
For example, they want to buy a present for someone else in another country, or they were on a trip the first time they visited your store, and we saved that consent.
Not giving the option to change the shopping experience easily can frustrate them and make them leave your site. To make it easy, we recommend adding a country and language selector which integrates with Orbe.
Why should you care about the country selectors?
Suppose the native selector is not integrated, and the user tries to change their preferences using this selector. In that case, it will get in an infinite loop of redirection, and they won't be able to change their preferences.
When you integrate the selector and customers change their preferences, Orbe resave their preferences and allows them to browse in another shopping experience.
But what happens in the subsequent visits?
Suppose the right shopping experience for a specific user is in Spain. Using the selector integrated with Orbe, they browse the French experience, and Orbe saves the consent. In this case, when the user visits the store in the future:
  • If they go to Spain, Orbe won't appear anymore.
  • If they go to France, as the user's preferences are France, then the popup won't bother them either.

How to Set up Your Country Selectors

In this context, you have three options for incorporating a country and language selector into your storefront. The options are sorted by preference, with the most recommended option listed first:
This option lets you incorporate a user-friendly pre-built selector offering multiple layouts quickly. Plus, it requires minimal development effort and comes with all the benefits of Orbe's technology.

Add a Custom Button for Market Preferences using Orbe

With this option, you can create a custom button to open the Orbe popup, which allows users to change their preferences. This option offers more flexibility than the first option but requires some development effort.
