In this article, you’ll learn how to create your very first PingBell, which allows you to receive custom notifications from sites like WooCommerce. You’ll learn how to add your PingBell account to WooCommerce via webhooks, so you and your team can get notified every time an event of your choosing occurs. All you need is a PingBell account and your WordPress account with the WooCommerce plugin.
Step 1: Create a Free Account at PingBell.iO
Head over to PingBell.io and create a Free account.
Step 2: Create Your First PingBell
Simply hit the create PingBell button to get started.
Step 3: Edit Your Notification Settings Within PingBell
Here, you can name your PingBell and set the notification message. You can write whatever you want! Such as New Sale! Order Created! Order Completed! etc. Then, you can choose a notification sound. With a free account, you have access to some notification sounds. PingBell does offer a paid plan, with access to many more notification sounds.
Step 4: Invite Other Users
Once you hit create PingBell, you will be greeted with the users section. Here, you can invite other people to receive push notifications. Simply add their PingBell account or email. Also, at the top of this page is your PingBell URL, which we will need later to integrate WooCommerce.
