Understanding options to enhance the functionality of popup modal

Enable Opt-in Subscription Rules

This popup modal will be displayed across all the pages allowed by the global targeting rule. However, if you wish, you can add these pop-ups on specific web pages.

Enable Subscription Overlay

An overlay is an option that highlights people to click on allow, indicating users to click allow the button to receive push notifications.

Enable Reminder Prompt:

Browsers like Chrome, and Edge are based on website visitors’ previous behavior if they click on Block often. They enable a quieter UI, a bell icon in the address bar. It is an optimized version of the subscription pop-up for people who usually deny notifications. This reminder can be shown on a desktop only. It is to educate people to still subscribe to web push campaigns.

Subscription pop-up:

This is the toggle button to disable or enable showing the opt-in on the pages installed with the code. If you turn off this toggle, you will stop collecting subscribers.

Quick Install :

We recommend keeping this option always off. So subscribers are collected on your domain. This option is only for people who are not able to add service worker to their website and collect subscriptions on their domain.

Enable Opt-in Subscription Trigger:

Apart from page load, the pop-up can be triggered on any other event like when the visitor clicks on any button or link with the help of a matching CSS class or element ID. The popup can be triggered without making changes to the codebase.

Show Opt-in:

This is where you can set the rule to either show the opt-in after a delay or after scrolling a certain percentage of the page.

  • Delay – After how long the Subscription popup should show up. We recommend best practice is to have it under 5 seconds or maximum 10 seconds.
  • Scroll – You can decide that the subscription popup can be triggered if a visitor has scrolled X percentage of the screen.
  • Cookie Duration – If a person cancels and decides to allow neither/block the subscription popup, then you can define the reset cookie duration. After those many days, the visitor can see the popup again.

That is it. Once you have customized the subscription pop-up as per your need, you can save the changes.

You are now ready to see your website visitors getting converted as web push subscribers.
