Using your own FCM IDLast Updated: August 28, 2018
Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) is a cross-platform messaging solution that lets you reliably deliver messages at no cost.
Understanding How FCM Works
An FCM implementation includes two main components for sending and receiving:
- A trusted environment such as Cloud Functions for Firebase or an app server on which to build, target, and send messages.

Configure your own FCM
By default, the FCM used for all our customers is iZooto’s default ID.
Updating FCM Details
In order to update your FCM details, iZooto’s default FCM project number and API key need to be replaced. This can be done from Settings >> General Settings >> Chrome Project Key
After clicking on Submit request for updation, you'll be asked to enter your FCM details - Sender ID and Server Key. This request can take upto 24 hours to get updated. Post-approval and update, you will be able to see your FCM details reflected on the panel and you would be able to build your subscriber base on it.
Updating FCM post subscriber acquisition
We recommend that you update your FCM details right after integrating the iZooto pixel. This will ensure that from day 0 (or atleast day 1), you build your subscriber base on your own FCM. Updating the FCM details post subscriber acquisition would lead to:
- Losing the earlier subscribers mapped to iZooto’s FCM details
- Maintaining two sets of subscribers and pushing notifications to them separately.
You don't need to update the FCM details if you have an HTTP website.
