GeoIP for FormMail

What is GeoIP?

GeoIP is a technology that allows you to find out the physical location of an IP address in the world.

You can convert your website visitors' IP addresses into city, state, country, and other information.

GeoIP support for FormMail allows you to pinpoint the geographic location of your website visitors who submit your forms.

  • Protect yourself from fraud.
  • Ensure credit card details match the address given.
  • Keep your customer database clean.

We've partnered with MaxMind to provide you with the ultimate in geolocation technology.
