I've been tearing (what's left of) my hear out today now that I've gotten the certificate and everything configured correctly in my account (https://community.pushwoosh.com/questions/380/problem-creating-safari-website-notification-platform-configuration).

Now I'm trying to implement the actual code to allow permission to work with no luck.

When it runs, in Safari Version 7.0.3 (9537.75.14), watching the error console, I get first "This is a new web service URL and its validity is unknown." and then "The user said no." without any interaction. I've searched all over the Web and can't find anything helpful (there are things about testing locally, etc.).

I am fairly confident I have it configured correctly.

Looking for help again. Thanks in advance!

Seems there were a few things going on.

First, there is an error in the code on this page (http://www.pushwoosh.com/programming-push-notification/safari/safari-website-notifications/). The correct code is:

// pushwoosh.com Safari push notifications
var checkRemotePermission = function (permissionData) {
    if (permissionData.permission === 'default') {
        console.log('This is a new web service URL and its validity is unknown.');
            'https://cp.pushwoosh.com/json/1.3/safari', // Pushwoosh web service endpoint URL, without slash
            'web.com.xxxxxxx.yyyyyyy', // Your unique reverse-domain Website Push ID from the Developer Center, starts with "web."
            { application:'xxxxx-xxxxx'},  // Your Pushwoosh application code from the Control Panel
            checkRemotePermission  // The callback function.
    } else if (permissionData.permission === 'denied') {
        console.log('The user said no.');
    } else if (permissionData.permission === 'granted') {
        console.log('The web service URL is a valid push provider, and the user said yes.');
        // permissionData.deviceToken is now available to use.

// Ensure that the user can receive Safari Push Notifications
window.onload = function(){
    if ('safari' in window && 'pushNotification' in window.safari) {
        var permissionData = window.safari.pushNotification.permission('web.com.xxxxxx.yyyyyy'); // Your Website Push ID
    } else {
        console.log('Push Notifications are available for Safari browser only');

Second, there was an issue with the Pushwoosh backend. They located a bug that resulted in Safari pushes not working properly during registration. The developers fixed the bug this morning, and everything worked.
