Geo Location


The geo_location parameter value you pass to us will yield a result with a corresponding delivery preference setting, as seen in the screenshots below:

There are a few ways you can use the geo_location parameter to get correctly-localized Amazon results.

For most Amazon domains, you can either send a zip/postcode, or a 2-letter ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code. Apart from a few exceptions, it sums up to two cases:

  • To localize the result to a place within the native country of the target marketplace, please use a zip/post code as geo_location parameter value. Examples of accepted domain & geo_location value pairs: {"domain": "com", "geo_location": "90210"}, {"domain": "", "geo_location": "W105LT"};

  • To localize the result to a place outside the native country of the target marketplace, please use a 2-letter country code. Examples of accepted domain & geo_location value pairs: {"domain":"com", "geo_location": "LT"}, {"domain":"de", "geo_location": "US"}.


Not all Amazon marketplaces are created equal - there are a couple of exceptions to the rules mentioned above:

  • cn,, and nl domains don't support setting a custom delivery location - please don't send the geo_location parameter with requests to these domains;

  • domain doesn't support setting a delivery location outside Australia - please send an Australian postcode with requests to this domain;

  • Instead of postcodes, .ae domain supports UAE city names as geo_location parameter values, e.g. "geo_location":"Abu Dhabi". Of course, you can use 2-letter country codes with this domain, too.

You can also use domain and locale parameters when scraping Amazon. Learn more here.

Google Shopping

The geo_location parameter facilitates obtaining localized Google results through UULE-based values, compatible with most Google Shopping sources. There are multiple methods to choose from:

  1. Using a State Name:

    • Format: "State,Country"

    • Example: "geo_location": "California,United States"

  2. Using a Country Name:

    • Pass the official country name.

    • Example: "geo_location": "United Kingdom"

  3. Using Coordinates and Radius:

    • For hyperlocal results (e.g., "restaurants near me"), provide latitude, longitude, and radius values.

    • Example: "geo_location": "lat: 47.6205, lng: -122.3493, rad: 25000"

  4. Using Google's Canonical Location Name or Criteria ID:

    • Find values here in the latest zipped CSV file.

    • Example: "geo_location": "New York,New York,United States" or "geo_location": "1023191"

If you mistakenly enter a misspelled geo_location parameter, our system or Google may attempt to correct it for you. However, note that specifying an existing Criteria ID is crucial for successful requests.

Additionally, consider combining the locale and domain parameters along with the correct geo_location structure. This combination enhances precision and ensures that your queries align with your intended localization preferences.

You can also use domain, results_language, locale parameters when scraping Google Shopping. Learn more here.


You can specify the delivery location at the zip code level by providing a zip code as the value for the geo_location parameter, for example, "geo_location": "60607".

Additionally, you can specify the Store ID using the context parameter.

"geo_location": "60607",
"context": [
        "key": "store_id",
        "value": "2070"

Home Depot

The geo_location parameter can be used to specify the delivery location either by zip code or by country.

Additionally, you can specify the Store ID using the context parameter. The Store ID must be a 4-digit number. For example, if the Store ID is a 3-digit number, prefix it with one zero (e.g., 618 -> 0618).

"geo_location": "29576",
"context": [
        "key": "store_id",
        "value": "2214"

Other Targets

For all other targets geo_location parameter picks the location of a proxy we will use for scraping.
