Cheap and easy SMS notifications

It is worth to send SMS to your customers, because people do not check their e-mails as often as their mobile phone inboxes. If you particularly care about time, the SMS notification is the best solution.

Many Internet users do not check their email boxes regularly. That's why an automatically sent e-mail, containing information about pending order payment, can be read by a customer few days after you had sent it. During this period nothing happens and ready-for-delivery package waits for order confirmation and clear payment. Wouldn't it be better to send a simple text message and be sure that it will be read by customer in a few minutes' time? Automatic SMS notifications are the best solution to keep your customers posted about important affairs.

Why it is better to send SMS from the IdoSell.com panel than from mobile phones or even SMS gates?

Below we would like to present the most important reasons for sending text messages via the IdoSell.com Administration Panel.

  • Sending short text messages does not require any additional effort:
    • easy to create templates containing active variables (more in the side menu to the right);
    • already prepared templates are easy to link with particular events (request for payment, order ready for shipping, order status has been changed).
  • The IdoSell.com is better than cell phone, even if you are sending single texts to you customers:
    • You can use branding - name of your on-line store shows up as a sender number;
    • It is simply cheaper - you pay only a few cents for single text message;
    • Sending SMS option is accessible for each Administration Panel user - you do not have to buy a cell phone for each employee;
    • Expenditures are always under your control - you can set daily costs limit, so your employees would not send thousands of texts if you do not wish them to;
    • Analysis of sent text messages - it is possible to view all messages sent in specified time frame;
    • Convenient settlement method - charges for sent text messages are settled in the invoice for subscription plan.
  • It's easy to create SMS newsletters - other systems support sending of only single text messages. Thanks to the IdoSell.com, you can easily create a newsletter template and assign a target group. The Administration Panel will automatically send text messages to every member of a particular, strictly-defined group.
  • The synergy effect in cloud computing - SMS notifications combined with the mobile mask of on-line store are the most efficient solution for modern sales. Your client can stay in touch with your shop without even turning his PC on!

Example: A seller sent notifications to every single client who had not paid for order. He did it using his mobile phone. He wrote the entire message on a manual keyboard - every time retyping the client's phone number. After he had started to use the SMS module in the Administration Panel, costs of sending text messages have lowered and sending has become faster - even three times than in the Skype service! In addition, seller does not have to pay for phone of his employee, who sends text messages in shopping rush periods. He has finally realized that the SMS module is a very useful feature, and has decided to use it repeatedly. From that moment he does not care about problems with sending notifications to customers anymore.
