What is an Alert

ALERTS are another means of permission-based marketing created by Retailers to send to specific Customers or Groups.  As the name suggests an Alert provides important information – such as notification of an upcoming sale, special or product launch, a new store, change of opening hours or even a product recall.

ALERTS can be sent to a Retailers’ own customers or to the entire Delloop Membership base.

ALERTS are created in a similar way to Offers.
