Localisation

Help on localization

Contents:

This help article gives you information on how to automatically give your location to #shoppy using an android, iOS or windows based device directly from the GPS receiver of the device. If you encounter any problem, trying to do this you can contact #shoppy at https://www.shoppyit.com/contact to propose aide with your own device. You could as well try the manual localization method (for devices which don't have a GPS receiver or in case of any difficulty with the automatic localization) at https://www.shoppyit.com/localisinator. In every platform, always ensure the GPS is active and on high precision mode (if available)
