WordPress WooCommerce Web Push Notification Plugin allows the admin to send browser push notification messages to its existing users. Web push notifications are clickable messages that are sent by a website to their subscriber’s browsers.
They work very similarly to mobile app push notifications. (notifications sent by a mobile app that land in your notification tray) Except that they work on websites instead of apps and can access on all devices (desktop, mobile, tablet, etc).
Web push notification is an important channel for E-commerce since it gives websites the power of instant communication to the subscriber and that too on all devices, whether it is desktop mobile or tablet.
Note: Compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browser and SSL certification is required for the website.
