You can compose, manage and schedule push notifications all within your Tapcart dashboard.
Under the Push Notification Tab on the dashboard, you can edit several elements of the push notification including the headline, message, and image. Tapcart syncs with your products and collections so you can deep-link push notifications to take a user to a specific page in your app.
You have the option to send a plain text push notification or rich push notifications. With rich push notifications, you can add a single image or create an animated lookbook with your products and collections. Animated lookbook notifications are only available for Tapcart Enterprise merchants.
Steps to compose a new push notification
You can add a headline to your push notification which will be bolded. This is optional.
Compose the main body of the alert message here. A best practice is to highlight the value of the push notification towards the top of the message.
The recommended character count is less than 175.
Add an image to your push notification. You can feature a product or collection from your store.
