Why are my push notifications not showing up on my mobile phone?

expand_more

This could have a variety of reasons. Please make sure that:

  1. You have opted in to push notifications on your domain
  2. You are not browsing in incognito (Chrome) or private (Firefox, Safari, Opera) mode
  3. Your device is online
  4. Your device is not in battery saving mode, preventing background processes
  5. You haven’t cleared your browser data

How do I install PushPro on my website?

expand_more

To use PushPro, your website needs to be HTTPS-enabled. HTTPS makes your website more secure by encrypting the traffic between your server and your visitors. If your website is already HTTPS-enabled, great! If not, keep reading.

You have two options to add HTTPS to your website. The first option is that you ask your hosting provider to activate it for you. The second option is that you obtain an SSL certificate yourself, which can be done for free via Let’s Encrypt.

Next up, add the Javascript file to the root directory of your website’s source code. If you manage the content of your website yourself, you can insert the files into the root folder. If you use a third party CMS such as Wordpress, you can add the files via the CMS portal.

The last step is including the code snippet we generated for you in the <head> of your website. Similar to the Javascript file, you can either add this yourself in the index.html, or input it via your CMS.

You can verify if you set everything up correctly by navigating to https://yourdomain.com/sw.js. If you do not get a 404 error, everything should be working!

That’s all, your website is now ready to send push notifications!

Do my subscribers need a mobile app to use PushPro?

expand_more

No, they don’t! The great thing about PushPro is that we send web-based push notifications. Once a visitor to your website has opted in to push notifications, they get sent to them straight from your website, no mobile app needed.

How should I configure my domains?

expand_more

The domain on which you implement PushPro will affect where your website visitors are requested to opt-in to push notifications. In most scenarios you want to ask your visitors to opt-in on your homepage, which is the top-level domain.

To enable push notifications on your website, you should first register a domain. In your PushPro portal, click “Create new domain”. You can now input a name to recognize your domain and the URL of your domain. Click save to confirm your domain. You can now further configure your domain.


Why am I not acquiring any new subscribers?

expand_more

There can be a few reasons for this. First, check if you correctly embedded our code into your website. Next up, check if your domain is spelled correctly in the PushPro settings. Finally, you might have exceeded your plan limit, consider upgrading to a higher plan!

Why doesn’t my website show an opt-in request?

expand_more

This can happen if the PushPro code snippet on your website has been added more than once or if you have added multiple snippets from different web push notification service providers. Make sure to delete all pre-existing push notification javascript before using PushPro. Moreover, always make sure you are using the latest PushPro code. Finally, empty your site cache and reverse proxies such as CloudFlare if being used.


How do I send a push notification?

expand_more

You can send a push notification in a few easy steps. Select the domain you want to send push notifications from. Next up, go to “notifications” in the sidebar menu and follow the steps to create a push notification. Give your notification a name, provide it with a message title, body text, destination url and a button text.

In step two you can provide the notification with a Time to Live and a Vibration pattern

You can preview the notification by pressing “Test Now”, Save the notification as a draft, Schedule the notification or Send it directly.

Can I use a UTM code in my landing page URL?

expand_more

If your website already makes use of google analytics, you can add a UTM code in the landing page URL field. If you haven’t used google analytics before, make sure to properly configure it before adding UTM codes.


How can I edit my domains?

expand_more

When you log in to the portal you will see an overview of your (in)active domains. Press the gear icon of the domain you want to edit so you can start configuring your domain settings.

You can edit several things:

  1. The name and URL of your domain (Press the pencil icon on the right of your domain name). The domain name and URL listed here are for your own reference only. If you want to switch the domain you use PushPro on, your current subscribers will not be transferred to your new domain. Please contact us at hello@pushpro.io to transfer your subscribers.
  2. (Paid plans) The notification image. Upload an image which will be shown on every notification sent from the selected domain.
  3. (Paid plans) The custom opt-in message. Here you can change the title and body text of your custom opt-in request.

If you change the notification image or custom opt-in message, make sure to replace your old code snippet with the new code snippet in the <head> </head> of your website!


What if I entered an incorrect domain name?

expand_more

No need to worry, you can edit the domain from the settings page and add the correct domain name. This will not affect any running operations.


How can I analyze the performance of my push notifications?

expand_more

On your PushPro portal, you will see "reports" in the dashboard. You can analyze the performance of each individual push notification you have sent. Each row in the table represents one of your messages. You are able to see the title of your message, how many subscribers received the message, how many of them opened the message and finally what the click-through rate is. You can use these statistics to improve your notification performance.


How does PushPro ensure GDPR compliance?

expand_more

We care deeply about your and your end-users’ privacy. We ensure GDPR compliance at all times. PushPro does not collect any personal information of your end-users. We do collect some of your personal information, which you can read more about in our privacy policy.


What happens if I exceed my plan’s subscriber limit?

expand_more

We will notify you when you reach 50%, 80% and 100% of your plan’s subscriber limit, so you will have plenty of time to consider an upgrade. We will send you an alert in your user profile so you always know!

If you do hit the 100% limit, we will still register new subscribers for a limited period. However, you won’t be able to send them push notifications.

When you upgrade your plan, these ‘sleeping’ subscribers will be reactivated.




I can’t login to my account anymore, what should I do?

expand_more

If you forgot your password, you can reset it at the login page. Simply click “forgot password?” below the login fields, and you will be sent a link to reset your password. If you still can’t login to your account, contact support at hello@pushpro.io, with subject “account”.


Which platforms are supported?

expand_more

We support all major browsers, including:

  • Chrome (Desktop + Mobile)
  • Firefox (Desktop + Mobile)
  • Edge (Desktop)
  • Opera (Desktop + Mobile)
  • Safari for Mac (coming soon!)

Please note that iOS does not currently support web push notifications. As soon as Apple provides support for iOS, we will implement this for use with PushPro.

How do you calculate my number of subscribers?

expand_more

Every time a website visitor allows you to send them push notifications via PushPro, (s)he clicks "allow" on their browser prompt.

This action triggers the creation of a subscription object which PushPro receives. Using this, we can reach your subscriber's browser.

Each of these subscription objects has a status, active or inactive. With every push notification you send, we check the subscription status.

Every active subscription object counts as a subscriber in your plan.

In your portal you have an overview of your active subscribers and your push notification performance.

How do I schedule a notification for future delivery?

expand_more

With PushPro, you can easily send scheduled notifications. Navigate to the Push Notifications tab in your portal and create a new notification like you're used to. Below the destination URL you can flip the 'scheduled sending' switch to on the send now button will turn grey and your online able to save the notifications to your scheduled menu. You can now select an exact date and time to send your notification. Mind the time zone you're in, which is listed above the date/time selector, and make sure you correctly select AM or PM time. Select Save Notification when you're done!

Can I save a notification and send it later?

expand_more

Sure you can! When creating a new push notification, instead of send now, hit 'save notification'. The notification will be saved as a draft, which you can see in the draft notifications overview. If you want to edit your draft, or push it to your subscribers, click edit icon.

How can I use PushPro with my CMS?

expand_more

It's super easy to use PushPro on popular CMS vendors. For every domain you want to use PushPro on, generate an API key in the domain settings.

Copy this API key and input it in your CMS.

- Magento 2

- WordPress

- Shopify (coming soon!)

How to unsubscribe from receiving push notifications?

After you've deleted your browser cache, you won't receive any more push notifications from the websites you've opted-in. If you ever decide to receive push notifications again, simply go to the website you wish to receive push notifications from.

What happens if my visitors reject the push notification?

expand_more

In some cases, it may occur that your visitors reject the custom opt-in and browser notification.

There are two scenarios

  1. A visitor can reject the first push notification opt-in.
  2. A visistor can accept the opt-in and block the browser notification.

For the first scenario the visitor is still able to accept the opt-in by refreshing the page or on his next visit to the website.

In case the second scenario occurs and the visitor blocked push notifications and still changes his mind and want to accept push notifications, the best way to fix this problem is to clear his browser cache. If he decides to clear his cache do the following; 1. Open up your browser 2. Go to settings 3. Find the setting to clear the browser data/history.

What is a vibration pattern?

expand_more

You can choose a vibration pattern for the device’s vibration hardware to emit when the notifications fires. At the moment this functionality is supported by Chrome, Opera and Samsung browsers on Android up to version O.



What is Time to Live?

expand_more

Time to Live

The time to live value controls the period PushPro tries to deliver a message to your subscribers. This is especially useful for non-mobile devices which are not always online. You can reduce the TTL for time-sensitive messages. That way your subscribers won’t receive the messages after it stopped being relevant.

The maximum duration of a TTL messages can be set to 28 days.
