It is excellent that you finally decided to enable push notifications for your eCommerce store. Naturally, you already know the power of push notifications; why else would you be here? However, if you aren’t yet, check this out.
Yes, yes, SMS and emails will get you to a certain point regarding customer engagement and retention. However, to level up from there, a push notification strategy is right for your online brand.
I was wondering how to enable push notifications.
Enabling Push Notifications Through a Website
To enable push notifications for your website, you’ll need to take the help of a web push notification tool. You’ll find many on the market; you can look at some of the best ones here. However, if you don’t already have one, you will be required to create an account for the tool you wish to use. Then, you will need to enter your online store’s website URL.
You will find a code to set up push notifications from the tool you have chosen. Once you copy-paste that code, you’ll move forward.
Does that sound a tad bit complicated? Well, don’t worry. You can set up, customize and create better mobile app push notification campaigns with the help of a no-code mobile app developer like Plobal Apps. Also, you can choose from different packages to build your app, the same as your website.
Enabling Push Notifications with Plobal Apps
Naturally, to be able to set up your push notifications through Plobal Apps, we will need to first design and build your app according to your requirement. This will take a matter of two weeks, maximum. However, with our drag-and-drop feature, you will also have the option of DIY-ing it (Designing it yourself).
If not, we are always there to serve and provide.
Plobal Apps is the certified mobile app builder for Shopify stores. And has partnered with several trusted Shopify apps and integrations to help better your mobile app experience.
One of these partnerships extends to Clever Tap, a platform built to increase customer retention for online stores. The key features of Clever Tap help merchants to analyze user behavior and segment customers based on 30+ events.
Now keep in mind, with Plobal Apps, when it comes to pushing notifications, there are two things to consider. You can enable move notifications through the Plobal Apps dashboard itself or an integration like Clever Tap.
The difference is that you can only enable the basic push notifications from the Plobal Apps dashboard. While serving the purpose, basic push notifications won’t allow you to send test push notifications, create segments, or even track user behavior. And, from our experience as the app commerce partners for 4000+ brands, we can’t stress how important it is to be able to analyze customer behavior and create segments to optimize your push notification campaigns. And that is why with whichever package you opt for, we provide the Clever Tap integration for free.
To set up your push notifications, you need to install and create an account for Plobal Apps through your Shopify store.
Add Plobal Apps to your Shopify store’s “Sales Channel” and build your app. You can choose the free trial option before selecting a package to be sure that you wish to move forward with us.
