Geolocation -- the greatest thing since sliced bread?
First Atlantic Commerce
16 July, 2007
IP geolocation evaluates an ecommerce transaction based on the geography of the customer's browser, enabling merchants to view the customer's location including country, city, ISP, etc. This is great stuff! Why?
This information can be used for marketing purposes -- to push content advertising to a targeted consumer audience or monitor and determine ROI of location specific ad campaigns.
And it can be used to protect your bottom line. When used for Geo Risk data monitoring purposes, for example, you can block restricted and high card fraud countries as well as habitual chargeback offenders from repeatedly visiting your website.
Geoblocking can also be utilised by businesses from a regulatory and compliance perspective to show compliance with licensing authorities and regulations across different jurisdictions.
First Atlantic Commerce's (FAC) geolocation services stand out from our competitors' services, however, because we offer the service in a simple "pay-as-you-go" model together with (or independent from) our payment solutions and other data management services.
Merchants get the service for a fraction of the cost of boxed solutions and our solution allows them to focus on marketing strategies, not the implementation of complicated IP Geo software. Plus merchants can connect and get started within a matter of days.
We provide a simple solution for gathering marketing and licensing compliance data. Check it out at www.firstatlanticcommerce.com or contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
