Manage your Geo-fence

Geo-fencing is a feature in a software program that uses the global positioning system or radio frequency identification to define geographical boundaries. A geofence is a virtual barrier.

Geofencing allows automatic alerts to be generated based on the defined coordinates of a geographic area. Triggers do not have to happen because of a physical presence. It would be possible to establish a geofence area around a neighborhood and have alerts.

Mshopper has introduced a brand new feature of geofencing to help its users locate a store which is very close to them. Geofencing has 3 sections:

  1. A. Manage Geofences
  2. B. Manage Notifications
  3. C. Analytics

These sections are described in details below:
