Communication Channels

Select the way you want to be informed regarding the notifications of your choice through one or more of the available communication channels:


• E-Mail: Select this channel and you will be getting your notifications on the e-mail account you are using with MarineTraffic. Every time that an occurrence triggers a notification, you will be directly informed. Cost is 1 Credit per 10 e-mails.


• Mobile Push (available to mobile devices using Android or iOS operating systems)Selecting this channel will enable you to be getting your notifications on your mobile phone or tablet directly from our servers.

• Text (SMS): If you select to be informed via Text (SMS), you will be getting SMS text messages on your phone. This means that you will be immediately notified even when you are in places without internet access. Cost is 3 Credits per Text (SMS).
