WordPress push notifications help in pushing blog updates to subscribers when you post a new blog or update one. These notifications resemble desktop notifications and fit right into the UI preferred by the user.
Below is list of top Web Push Notifications plugin
OneSignal is an easy way to increase user engagement. Use OneSignal to send visitors targeted push notifications so they keep coming back. It takes just a few minutes to install.
After setup, your visitors opt-in to receive push notifications when you publish a new post. Visitors receive these notifications even after they’ve left your website, thus driving re-engagement.
You can configure notification delivery at preset intervals, create user segments, and customize the opt-in process for visitors.
OneSignal is free for up to 30,000 subscribers; there are no limits on the number of push notifications you can send.
PushEngage Web Push Notifications enables you to add Chrome and Firefox push notifications to your website. It’s similar to OneSignal, in that you have to create an account with the PushEngage service for the plugin to work.
Along with basic push notification functionality, you can also use the service to target specific segments of your subscribers. It’s also possible to schedule push notifications in advance, which can come in handy as a reminder for scheduled events.
Push Notifications for WordPress by PushAssist enables you to set up push notifications for most major browsers. You can configure the actions that trigger these notifications, and even send fully custom messages if you want to.
Overall, this plugin stands out due to its polished interface and how easy it is to set up. It’s an excellent option if you’re looking for a straightforward WordPress push notifications plugin. However, its free plan caps your list of subscribers at 3000, which can be a downside if you aren’t willing to pay for the upgrade.
Push Monkey Pro is a little different, since it enables you to integrate your push notifications with WooCommerce. This way, you’ll be able to target users with abandoned carts on your site, and talk them into coming back and wrapping up their purchase.
Aside from WooCommerce integration, Push Monkey Pro also supports regular push notifications when you publish or update a post. Moreover, we’re big fans of the plugin’s stats screen, which shows you a lot of helpful information at a glance. The only downside is that the plugin itself is still fairly new, so we can’t fully endorse it. However, it does look very promising, so it might be worth trying out for smaller websites.
Smart Notification WordPress Plugin is an all-in-one plugin that enables you to send push notifications via more platforms than just browsers. Along with the basics, such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, it also supports Facebook Messenger notifications and mobile operating systems.
The downside, in this case, is that you have to do a lot of setup work to get all those types of notifications working. This is even more true if you want to integrate the plugin with WooCommerce or bbPress, which are two other add-ons the platform offers.
The Free Web Push Notification Tool by iZooto is different from the other plugins we’ve covered so far. It doesn’t enable you to set up WordPress push notifications for new posts or updates. Instead, it’s built to help you create and deliver campaigns via push notifications.
This can come in handy if you’re running an online store instead of a blog, for example. This isn’t the only plugin on this list that supports campaigns, but it’s the only one that offers the feature for free. Moreover, it provides a decent amount of styling options for your WordPress push notifications. The only downside is the plugin itself is rather new, so it may still have some kinks to work out.
