Pushpad is a service for sending push notifications from your website or web app. It supports the Push API (Chrome, Firefox, Opera) and APNs (Safari).

It offers two different ways for collecting subscriptions to push notifications. Depending on your needs you may want to use one or the other.

Pushpad Express is the easiest way to create a channel to send push notifications to your users. When you create a new project you get a link. Share it with your users to let them subscribe to your notifications.

Pushpad Pro is made for developers and large projects who are looking for a simple and efficient Backend as a Service for sending push notifications. You manage user subscriptions directly on your website using the Javascript SDK.
