How to get the user location using REST API

Is there any way to get the user location using REST API ? I have investigated the same in Marketo doc but couldn't find a solution.

Hi San,

Yes.. country, city etc.  We need to know the visitors location.  We have to display list of items in our website based on the location  (country, city) where the visitors came.

Re: How to get the user location using REST API

You cannot use the REST API for this for a multitude of reasons: [1] the API is not designed to be used via the browser (including via proxy) or you have created a gaping Denial of Service hole; [2] the data isn't available when the Munchkin session is created.

Use a service designed for this, like MaxMind.

Or maybe use free API's like https://ipapi.co/json
