Fomo users love how notifications alert visitors to their site of the latest events that are happening - purchases, announcements, sign ups, reviews and more! One additional thing users asked for was a way to display Fomo notifications to past visitors who had not returned to their website recently. Something to give them a ... push!

When done right, push notifications can help you reach and convert more users - since Fomo is all about increasing conversion rates this is a natural extension of our product.

A visitor who opts into push notifications from your site is a warm lead! To keep them warm, send them a little nudge to return your website to complete a transaction, or make a repeat one.

**Note** Push Notifications is not available for BigCommerce yet. We're working on it!

Users on Shopify will automatically have the necessary files added to their website.

Users on all other platforms will need to follow the installation guide to upload a service worker file to your websites root directory.

Create Your Push Notification Prompt

After you've installed the file, you can get started creating your Opt In messaging by clicking on Edit Prompt.

3) Give subscribers the first chance to purchase new products
