A push notification is an SMS styled message that's sent to a user and is received by the mobile app.
A lot of our users like to use this function as it does not cost any money unlike SMS’s and has very similar functionality to SMS.
When does a push notification send?
There are three variables when it comes to push notifications:
The user needs to have the mobile app installed and logged in
The app mustn't be open
The Send push notification option must be checked
This means that unlike SMS, the user must have the app installed.
