A Push Notification is a way for an app to send information to a mobile phone (via a badge, alert, or pop up message) even when the app isn’t in use.
For example, if you have a nightclub mobile app you can send you can send a message directly to the customers who have downloaded the app about a special promotion or event, even if the app isn’t running. The notification will send you a message, and when you touch it, it will direct you back to the app for more information.
How Much Do Push Notifications Cost?
The best thing about push notifications is they are 100% FREE. For example if you have a database of clients who have provided their mobile numbers for text message marketing, sending a text message to these clients can be costly. Lets say you have 1000 customers who visit your nightclub and you want to send a text message to each of these customers. A third party text messaging service will cost approximately 0.03 pence per text message. So to run a campaign would cost you £30.00. With push notifications you wont be charged a penny!
Am I limited to how many I can send?

How long does it take to send a message?

What happens if I have 30,000 people using my mobile app?
It doesn’t make any difference whether you have 300 or 3,000 customers using your mobile app. You can still send push notifications for free!
