No, the database migration does not require anything of the sort. Your subscribers have already given consent to receive notifications on their browsers, so nothing will change for them. They will not experience any inconvenience during the transition from one service to another.
Furthermore, even if your database is extensive, you can still transfer it quickly. There is no need to rebuild it or wait too long.
When a user grants permission to receive notifications from a particular domain, the service worker file is loaded into their browser.
As a result, subscriptions are controlled by the browser, service worker, and domain settings. They are not assigned to a specific list. That’s why migrating the database doesn’t simply work by copying/pasting lists of subscribers from one service to another in CSV/Excel format.
Since the database migration process is closely tied to the service worker and its updates on the website, you will transfer the most recent subscribers who revisit your website and receive your messages
It takes about 24 hours to transfer your database, just make sure to select a method with the “trigger” migration message. As for the migration order, it depends on user activity and their interaction with the “trigger” notification sent. Those who return to your website after receiving this message will be the first to be migrated.

Yes, you can do that. The process of migrating the old database from any service to Pushloop and collecting new subscribers do not interfere with each other.
