UNLI Marketing One Time Notifications For Facebook Messenger
What is One Time Notification (OTN)?
As you know Facebook Messenger Platform doesn’t allow sending a message after 24 hours of last interaction by any subscriber.
Once any subscriber interacts with your Messenger, you have 24 hour time to send a promotional message as many as you want (Don’t spam).
After 24 hours, you are not allowed to send any message (Except using some specific tag only for the non-promotional message.)
Here One Time Notification API is provided by Facebook to send promotional messages after 24 hours window.
The Messenger Platform’s One-Time Notification API (Beta) allows a page to request a user to send one follow-up message after 24-hour messaging window has ended. The user will be offered to receive a future notification. Once the user asks to be notified, the page will receive a token which is an equivalent to a permission to send a single message to the user. The token can only be used once and will expire within 1 year of creation
Why it’s so important?
After deprecated sending messages after 24 hours, OTN is the only option to send a promotional message now.
