Other things you can do to troubleshoot the instant alert:

  1. Within your device's settings, check if your operating system shuts off idle apps if the app hasn't been used for a while. This setting needs to be disabled to allow the instant alert to come through.

  2. Try to set your display to Always On (never sleeps, goes idle, or shuts off), and leave the In-Store Merchant App open as much as possible, to prevent your operating system from shutting off apps automatically.
