Here are the major steps that show how push notifications work.

  1. Integrate push notification service to the website using code integration or plugins.
  2. Add push notifications opt-in to the website for visitors to subscribe for your push service.
  3. Create push campaigns from the push notification provider for the push subscribers.
  4. The API call from the back end triggers the push message to your user’s device.
  5. The sw.js file receives a “push event” when the push arrives on the device. The sw.js file will let you show notifications on your user’s devices. 

To start using push notifications, sign-up to Truepush and turn your visitors into repeat customers.
