onsite notifications

“The idea to implement a notification feed on our website came from our desire to engage with our customers more effectively. 

We wanted to provide them with real-time updates on relevant promotions and product news, while also maintaining an unobtrusive browsing experience. To achieve this, we turned to Wisepops and its powerful notification capabilities.”
