100+ App Push Notification Templates for Shopify Abandoned Cart Recovery

The writer who penned this article once had the job of writing push notifications for multiple markets sent twice a day.

Needless to say, coming up with copy consistently for different campaigns became a Sisyphean task.

If, like most Shopify brands, you have several flows or custom audiences, it can become even more time-consuming.

But it is worth the effort - with push notification boasting an impressive open rate of 90%, and its potential for deep customization makes it a key marketing strategy for reaching out to customers through your mobile app.

To make it easier on our clients, we decided to write and share 100+ push notification templates for some of the most high-converting campaigns you can send: abandoned cart notifications!
