Part 1: Set up Web push notifications

The setup of Web push allows you to link Brevo to your website. This way, you'll be able to manage your website's Web push campaigns directly from Brevo.

The goal of this setup is also to enable the browser opt-in for clients. If clients allow the opt-in, they will receive your Web push notifications when they visit your website. If clients block the opt-in, they will never receive the browser opt-in again nor your Web push notifications.

We've created a series of articles to help you get started with sending Web push campaigns:

🔎 Step 1: Website details

  1. Go to Campaigns > Web push.
  2. Click Activate Web push.
  3. Enter your website name and the URL link to your website homepage.
    Your website URL should follow one of these formats:
    https://yoursite.com ; https://www.yoursite.com ; https://subdomain.yoursite.com
    ❗️ Important
    Once you've set up Web push, you cannot change your website URL. However, you can access the Web push Settings page to edit your opt-in, website's name, company logo, code tracking, and more.
    To learn more, check our dedicated article Part 3: Review and manage your Web push campaigns.
  4. Optional: Upload your company's logo.
    Your company logo will appear on your Web push notifications. 
  5. Click Save.

👥 Step 2: Subscriber collection

This step consists of installing a tracker to link your website to Brevo and collect your visitors' opt-in.

    2.  Create a sendinblue folder under the root folder, which is publicly accessible. This root folder is usually called public_html.
      ❗️ Important
      For now, you still need to name your folder sendinblue, not brevo.
    3. Upload the service-worker.js setup file in the sendinblue folder.

  3. Go to yoursite.com/sendinblue/service-worker.js replacing yoursite.com with your actual domain.
    ➡️  For example
    If your domain is theexample.com go to the link theexample.com/sendinblue/service-worker.js.
    ✅ If the setup file is installed correctly, you will see this message:
