Default Geo Targeting to one specific merchant.

Hi Eric and Team,

I have this code to redirect people to a certain page based on their Geographical location.
The trouble is, I'm not sure how to use it. Only one of my merchants ships outside of the US, so I want to setup a page with only this merchants products and use the code below to have international users open to this page as opposed to how it opens now, with all my merchants.
I need to know where to post the code to and do I make a new page or category for this one merchant. Any help would be great.

Here is the link to my site: http://allamericansneakers.com

Here is the code, it will need to be modified, but I think I can handle that.

<?php

$server = ''; // MySQL hostname
$username = ''; // MySQL username
$password = ''; // MySQL password
$dbname = ''; // MySQL db name


$db = mysql_connect($server, $username, $password) or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die(mysql_error());

$sql = 'SELECT
country
FROM
ip2nation
WHERE
ip < INET_ATON("'.$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'].'")
ORDER BY
ip DESC
LIMIT 0,1';

list($country) = mysql_fetch_row(mysql_query($sql));

switch ($country) {
case 'se':
// Get the Swedish to a Swedish newssite
header('Location: http://www.thelocal.se/');
exit;
case 'us':
// And redirect US visitors to CNN
header('Location: http://www.cnn.com/');
exit;
default:
// The rest of the world can go to BBC
header('Location: http://www.bbc.co.uk/');
exit;
}

?>

I think you will probably need to write your own WP Plugin to handle this. This is outside the scope of Datafeedr.

Maybe this (paid) GEO targeting WordPress plugin may help...

http://thewordpress.net/plugins/geotargeting/

It allows you to redirect visitors from a certain country to any URL
