How To Understand The Push Notification Opt-In Analytics Report?
Push Notification Opt-In works like the marketing funnel. First, we need to see how many times your opt-in appears. This is the top funnel. Next is the second impression which is the intermediate page. Note, in HTTPS sites, you don't need an intermediate page or pop-up, and can skip this step.
Once the user sees the opt-in, he has two options – Allow or Block. If he allows he will see the intermediate page. The third and last important thing is subscription. In the intermediate page, if the user “Allows” notification, he will be subscribed to the notification. Below image will give you a clearer idea:
