What is the WeChat “Shake” Discovery Feature?

The WeChat “Shake” discovery feature allows users to see new offers and can download coupons or further details. This allows businesses to provide an experience similar to iBeacon, while also eliminating the need for them to build their own app. This feature is perfect for promoting your business to Chinese customers overseas. This service can be used by overseas retailers, cafes and restaurants who are looking to drive Chinese clients to their shops, especially for those who don’t speak foreign languages.
