You have to open the Pokemon Go app to check the map if your shop is a Pokemon Gym or a PokeStop. The Pokemon Gym is where players of one team coming from either team Mystic, Valor, or Instinct can challenge another team and gain leadership over the gym. A PokeStop is where players can get items, eggs, and pokeballs and see where other Pokemons could be hiding.
If your shop is not indicated as either a gym or a PokeStop, you can send a request.
With a Lure Module, you can attract Pokemons for at least 30 minutes. Pokemons do not just pop up in many locations. Some players are voicing frustrations over social media as they can’t find any Pokemons in their places. Use this to your advantage.
To activate Lure, you must tap the Pokeball icon at the bottom. Next, choose ‘Shop,’ then tap the purple icon. You will have to pay at least US$1 for 30 minutes of luring effect. Once redirected to the app, tap the Pokeball Icon to choose ‘Items.’ You can finally activate the Lure. Pokemons will appear and spawn faster than in other areas.

Pokemon Go uses data or WiFi because it is an online line. It also uses GPS to track the players. While players are out catching Pokemons, it is very possible that they run out of battery juice. Attract the players by letting them charge up in your shop either for free or at a cheap price.
Users can Check-In in on their social media apps. It will tell their friends and followers their current location. Imagine what this can potentially do with your shop.
