Web Push Notification is an extension for Magento 2 which enables you to send the push notifications. This extension sends an instant push notification to the web browser of the subscribed customers whenever they operate the browser. It saves your time as you can schedule and send the notifications accordingly and not wait for the subscribers to open the browser.
Whenever a customer subscribes, he initially receives a ‘Thank you’ notification which will get sent only once. You can edit the title and message of this Thank You notification. You can also set an icon to get displayed in the web push notification.
The extension uses 'Firebase' third-party service to send the notifications. If you do not configure this, the push notifications can not be sent. Firebase offers a free plan with some specific number of notifications. The extension can work with it. Still, if you want to send a large number of notifications, then you need to buy a paid plan. The pricing info goes here.
The account does not get created with the extension installation. You can create an account here: Google Firebase. In the account, you can find the 'server key' and 'sender id' which you need to configure in the extension.
