Web Push

Web push allows businesses to send push notifications to anonymous website visitors even when they are not signed up, even when they are not browsing the website and even when the browser is turned off.
To receive push notifications, visitors must first subscribe or opt-in to push notifications at your website.
To start using FlareLane web push, you will need to go through a simple Integration process. Collaborate with your developers to integrate web push into your website and begin engaging with your website visitors.
