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 Shop panel than from mobile phones or even SMS gateways?

The synergy effect in cloud computing - SMS notifications combined with the (mobile|mobile version of your store)) are the most efficient solution for modern sales. Your client can stay in touch with your shop without even turning the computer on!
Example: A seller sent notifications to every single client who had not paid for order. They did it using a mobile phone. They wrote the entire message on a manual keyboard - every time retyping the client's phone number. After they 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 employees, who send text messages in shopping rush periods. A seller 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.
Instead of SMS you can send Web Push notifications to customers, which they read in their web browser, on almost any device. This form of marketing practically costs you nothing.
