I can't download the shopkick app as i am not based in the US, but i'm trying to find out how they handle / implement their location based services.
They say that they can communicate with their customers as soon as they walk into a shop via the app. Does anyone know how they accomplish this?
"Customers are rewarded with loyalty points for just stepping into a shop". Correct me if i am wrong but isn't Geo Location limited to about 10-20 metres and what if you are standing beside 3 small shops... does it give you points for all 3 shops because you happen to be close to them all OR do they have some unique way of actually recognising you via the app when you walk into the store.
Thanks in advance to any help that you can give on this...
