What is a push notification?

A mobile push notification is a message sent from a server to a customer’s mobile device (smartphone or tablet). To do this, you need your own mobile application. Push notifications are necessarily linked to a mobile application. Once installed, your customers don’t need to open the application in question, or even use their cell phone to receive your notification.

What advantages does it offer retailers?

Push notifications are a great way to stay intouch with customers and build loyalty. As with SMS, push notifications cannot be blocked by spam filters or forgotten like e-mails. 

The opt-in rate (users having agreed to receive push notifications) is very satisfactory, averaging 73%. You can increase this rate within your business by creating real value for your customers.

What’s more, their performance is very high: the open and read rate of a push notification is close to that of SMS, at around 95%.
