Click on New Project:
Choose a name for your project and select Website as a platform then click Create:
Already have a project?
Just add the Website platform to any existing project by going to Settings, selecting the first tab named after your project and clicking Edit. You'll be presented a form that lets you add a platform.
Then fill in your website information:
Enter the name of your website. This name might be displayed when users subscribe to push notifications.
Enter the base URL of your site (e.g.
https://example.com). This will be the default URL users will be redirected to when they click on a notification.
If your site is accessible from both
www. and non-
www. URLs (e.g.
www.example.com) we recommend you redirect traffic to one of the URLs and use that to fill-in the URL field.
Enter the URL to your website icon or choose a file from your computer. Your website icon will be displayed in notifications. It should be a square image file. Prefer HTTPS.
In this section, you can configure subscription prompts for your website. Subscription prompts are ready-made user-interfaces you can use to let users subscribe to push notifications.
To activate a subscription prompt, simply click the switch in front of its name so that it shows as ON. To customize it, click on Customize.
You can find out more about subscription prompts in our dedicated guide.
In the section Install & Configure Shopify App enter your
.myshopify.com store URL and click Continue:
Your myshopify.com store URL is the default URL provided by Shopify when you first created your store. You can find it by logging into your Shopify admin and look at the address bar of your browser.
Then click the link Install WonderPush Shopify app.
Click Install unlisted app to install the WonderPush app:
WonderPush should be configured out of the box:
Head over to your website and refresh the page until you see the subscription dialog you've previously configured and click the positive button:
Wait a couple of minutes and receive the default welcome notification:
Congratulations, you're done!
A cart reminder automatically sends push notifications to users that leave without buying the contents of their shopping cart.
By default, the cart reminder is active. You can make sure of this by going to your WonderPush dashboard and making sure the Cart reminder notification is active:
If you can't find the cart reminder notification, because you've deleted it or because your project was created before Sept 1st 2019, you can still create it yourself.
In the WonderPush Shopify app, make sure “The abandoned cart reminder is Enabled”:
You can customize the user experience of the cart reminder to best suit your needs:
- the product used for the notification title: latest added, cheapest or most expensive,
- the notification message, which appears just below the title,
- the destination where the user is taken upon notification click,
- whether to display a product image or not.
Hit Save to persist your changes.
Users that add something to their cart and leave your Shopify site without buying will receive a notification after 30 minutes.
