Customer Segmentation via Geolocation

You can define customer segments of registered and unregistered customers based on geolocation for targeted campaigns, micro-sites and product lines. You can do this in Salesforce B2C Commerce by creating a dynamic customer group with the Geolocation attribute. In B2C Commerce, a customer's geolocation is based on the customer's IP address and the geolocation database that is integrated with B2C Commerce, the GeoLite database created by MaxMind, available at http://www.maxmind.com.
