Migrating to iZooto

Yes, you can migrate your existing subscribers to iZooto. There are two ways in which the migration can be completed.

Auto-migration

How does it work?

Whenever a website goes live with iZooto, it starts capturing new subscribers (i.e. visitors clicking on ‘Allow’) and also start moving the existing subscribers (i.e. visitors who would have subscribed to the website with the previous tool). The existing subscribers won’t be asked for push notifications consent again as they are already subscribed to the website domain, and they will start moving to iZooto as and when they come back on the website. For a website with higher repeat traffic, we should be able to move a significant subscriber base to iZooto.

What would be the visible impact on iZooto’s panel?

The Number of subscriptions flowing in the system would be higher in the initial few days as it will account for both existing and new subscribers. The customer would be able to reach out to all the subscribers from day 1.

What’s the process to enable this?

There is no additional step that the customer would need to take to enable the auto-migration. The process would kick off as soon as the website goes live with iZooto.

Will my existing subscriber have to re-subscribe?

  1. Your subscriber base won't be presented with any opt-in seeking consent again.
  2. Whenever an earlier subscriber revisits your website, his service worker instance would be automatically get updated in the background, making him eligible to receive push notifications. Since this process depends exclusively on your repeat traffic, the migration of your subscriber base can take anywhere between 1 to 6 months.
  3. With this in place, you will see the count of subscribers decreasing on the earlier provider's dashboard while it increases on the iZooto dashboard, which will be a combination of your subscribers being migrated and new subscribers being acquired.

You can speed up this process by pushing campaigns from the earlier provider's panel for a few days so that more subscribers can be reached out and prompted to revisit the website.

Subscriber import (from OneSignal)

How does it work?

The functionality enables customers to import existing VAPID endpoints (i.e. subscribers) into iZooto and to send out notifications to all the valid subscriptions from day 1.

What would be the visible impact on iZooto’s panel?

The number of total subscribers would go up and the number of imported subscribers will get accounted for under the acquisition graph.

The new subscriber acquisition will work as usual.

What’s the process to enable this?

You would need to provide us with two things from OneSignal:

  • Pair of VAPID public & private keys

You would need to place a request with OneSignal support to retrieve this for your website.

  • VAPID endpoints

Here’s the documentation on how the customer can get the VAPID endpoints for their website.

curl_resp=$(curl -X POST -H "Authorization: Basic YOUR_REST_API_KEY" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{
    "extra_fields": ["country","notification_types","external_user_id", "location", "rooted", "ip", "country", "web_auth", "web_p256"],
        "segment_name": "Active Users"
}' "https://onesignal.com/api/v1/players/csv_export?app_id=YOUR_APP_ID");

📘

NOTE:

You would incur a one-time cost to Import all your subscribers to iZooto.
