Web push notifications on new orders

In Shop-Script 7 you can enable web push notifications to quickly learn about on new orders without looking into your store backend. Web push notifications appear directly on your computer screen.

Web push notifications can be enabled separately for each browser that you use. For example, in your office you can enable them, while on your home computer they can be disabled, in the same backend account.

Web push notifications only work with Shop-Script backend opened via https://.

Supported browsers are Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari on Mac OS X. Full list of supported browser versions is available on the documentation page.

In OneSignal service occasional delays may occur; therefore, some notifications may be shown to you not immediately but in a few minutes.
