I don't want desktop notifications, ever. Can these be disabled?


As orders come into your store, you will receive an indicator at the top right of the Shift4Shop Online Store Manager as well as a copy of the customer's notification email. And - if you are using Google's Chrome browser while logged into your store admin -you will also receive desktop notifications from the browser.

Desktop Notification are a default feature in Chrome but it can be enabled/disabled and fine tuned as needed.

Please use the following steps copied directly from Google's help information:

Turn notifications on or off

You can set up Chrome to get notifications, like meeting reminders, from websites, apps, and extensions on your computer.

How notifications work

By default, Chrome alerts you whenever a website, app, or extension wants to send you notifications. You can change this setting at any time.

If you’re browsing in incognito mode, you won’t get notifications.
