To send a push notification to an individual user or audience in real-time, use the Localytics Push API. You can use the Localytics Push API to trigger notifications programmatically based on any server event.
You might use a transactional message to:
- Alert a user that their taxi has arrived
- Notify a user that their pizza delivery is on its way
- Notify an audience of users of breaking news
Remember, transactional push notifications are most often used to notify users based on activities or data that you are tracking in your backend (order fulfillment, breaking news, updated sports scores, etc.) - not based on events that users are doing in your app. If you want to send a message after a user completes an event in your app, we recommend creating an in-app campaign triggered to display instantly when a user completes an event.
