Firebase is a technology that permits you to make web applications with no server-side programming so that development turns out to be quicker and easier. With Firebase, we don't have to stress over-provisioning servers or building REST APIs with just a little bit of configuration; we can give Firebase a chance to take every necessary step: storing data, verifying users, and implementing access rules. Applications using Firebase can just use and control data, without having to think about how data would be stored, and synchronized across various examples of the application in real time.
Web Push Notification Marketplace Add-On allows the admin and sellers to send push notifications to their subscribed users. The sellers can send the push notification messages from the front-end. The admin and the sellers can create various templates for the push notification. The admin and sellers can view, delete and send push notification messages to their own respective users.
