Page Stream is one of our most requested features since launch in 2016.
For ecommerce stores especially, it helps express the popularity of every one of your products on a per page level basis.
How it Works
Suppose you sell red shoes and blue shoes.
On your red shoes sales page, e.g.
/product/red-shoes , Fomo will show notifications like "5 sneakerheads bought these in the last 24 hours" or "Harry from Austin bought red sneakers."
Then, on your blue shoes sales page (
/product/blue-shoes ) Fomo will similarly show a count of blue shoes purchases or individual Fomo notifications for blue shoes purchases.
Note: each notification roundup is counted for that product/page only, and is not shown on other URLs.
Step 1 - Enable Page Stream
While logged into Fomo navigate to Integrations, then search for Page Stream or scroll down to find it.
Click to connect.
Your Page Stream settings will look like this:
If your product path is in the format
/products/ would be used for the second input above.
You can separately enable and disable (i) the roundup Fomo notification and (ii) individual Fomo notifications scoped by product page.
Step 2 - You're Done!
For all Fomo notifications with clickable URLs, Fomo will now aggregate similar notifications/events (with the same URLs) and show them off on that page of your website.
A roundup Fomo notification looks like this:
You can modify the template messaging of your Page Stream notifications anytime by clicking the template itself inside Fomo > Integrations > Page Stream.
Sometimes your website has a "slow period" with fewer sales or opt-ins in a given time period.
To protect your brand image, simply set a "minimum threshold" on your Page Stream setup from the integration page:
If a given product's sales or signups aren't at least that amount in the last 24 hours, we won't turn it into a Fomo notification.
Page Stream works based on current URL of the browser. Sometimes websites are attaching additional query params to the URL (e.g. UTM params or query which was used in search).
In this case make sure that you are properly using canonical tag in HTML head for each product.
<link rel="canonical" href="https://shop.com/my_first_product" />
When canonical tag is present, Fomo will fetch events related to the canonical URL.
