Messenger Push Setup

This document lists down step by step procedure and the list of prerequisites that need to be followed.

What are the prerequisites to setup Messenger Push Notifications?

- The Facebook Page should have Publisher Status i.e be registered as a News Page Index. This is a foundational step to help Facebook identify Pages that primarily publish news content on the platform.

How to register for News Page Indexing?

1. Admin of the page needs to access Business Settings > Registrations > News Pages > Select the Page.


2. Complete the Business and Domain Verification and hit Submit.

You shall see a confirmation once your Facebook Page is registered as News Page Index.



The NPI approval process could take up to a few weeks. It is suggested that you complete this procedure beforehand.



If the Facebook Page is not NPI approved and you have started sending Messenger Push Notifications, notifications will only be sent to an audience that has sent out a message to the page in the last 24 hour window.
