For Zoho Services only:

I'm actually part of a bigger team at Ascent Business Solutions where we have support technicians and project consultants. Support is for smaller technical fixes but this can include developments, reports or integrations; depending on the size of the task. Projects are for more time-consuming developments such as revamps of the Zoho Suite of apps or on-site training. The advantage of a team is that if I am out-of-office for a day or so, there is always someone at Ascent Business Solutions who can deal with any queries/issues you may have.

Our support rates can be found and purchased at A support bundle doesn't have an expiry date. So whether we can do what you want within the bundle and a year later need further support, if there are minutes left on the bundle then there is no additional charge.

Our project rates for bigger developments can be found at and will involve a dedicated project consultant along with developers who will hold your hand through the development process.

If you want help building a solution for one of the Zoho Apps in the Zoho Suite, contact us on 0121 293 8140 (UK) or by email at You can also visit our website at

I regularly build and specialize in 2-way API integrations for Xero, Shopify and eBay.

Zoho Deluge - Get User Timezone, Country and Location

A quick article just as a note to get the users country information from a third-party API based on the given IP address.

Well this is just a list of free 3rd-party APIs and the below code is dependent on these being online and working...

The quickest I found [limit 1000 per day | Incorrect Location]:
v_Url = ""+ zoho.ipaddress;
v_Response = getUrl( v_Url );
  1.  v_Url = ""+ zoho.ipaddress; 
  2.  v_Response = getUrl( v_Url )

Returns something like:
    "ipAddress": "",
    "continentCode": "EU",
    "continentName": "Europe",
    "countryCode": "GB",
    "countryName": "United Kingdom",
    "stateProv": "England",
    "city": "Birmingham (Edgbaston)"
  1.  { 
  2.      "ipAddress": "", 
  3.      "continentCode": "EU", 
  4.      "continentName": "Europe", 
  5.      "countryCode": "GB", 
  6.      "countryName": "United Kingdom", 
  7.      "stateProv": "England", 
  8.      "city": "Birmingham (Edgbaston)" 
  9.  } 

A more comprehensive alternative [Limit 150 per minute | not for commercial use]:
v_Url = ""+ zoho.ipaddress;
v_Response = getUrl( v_Url );
// usage: v_TimeZone = v_Response.getJSON("timezone");
  1.  v_Url = ""+ zoho.ipaddress; 
  2.  v_Response = getUrl( v_Url )
  3.  // usage: v_TimeZone = v_Response.getJSON("timezone")

Returns something like:
    "query": "",
    "status": "success",
    "continent": "Europe",
    "continentCode": "EU",
    "country": "United Kingdom",
    "countryCode": "GB",
    "region": "ENG",
    "regionName": "England",
    "city": "Birmingham",
    "district": "",
    "zip": "B15",
    "lat": 52.4666,
    "lon": -1.9205,
    "timezone": "Europe/London",
    "isp": "University of Birmingham",
    "org": "The University of Birmingham",
    "as": "AS786 Jisc Services Limited",
    "asname": "JANET",
    "mobile": false,
    "proxy": false
  1.  { 
  2.      "query": "", 
  3.      "status": "success", 
  4.      "continent": "Europe", 
  5.      "continentCode": "EU", 
  6.      "country": "United Kingdom", 
  7.      "countryCode": "GB", 
  8.      "region": "ENG", 
  9.      "regionName": "England", 
  10.      "city": "Birmingham", 
  11.      "district": "", 
  12.      "zip": "B15", 
  13.      "lat": 52.4666, 
  14.      "lon": -1.9205, 
  15.      "timezone": "Europe/London", 
  16.      "isp": "University of Birmingham",
