Using SMS reminders
SMS (text messages) are an excellent way to send your invitees a confirmation or reminder before the booking and can help keep your invitees engaged, reducing no-shows.
In this guide you'll learn how to setup SMS notifications on your booking page that send to your invitee.
Purchase SMS credits on your account
SMS credits can be purchased on any of your booking page editor by scrolling to the Notifications section and clicking "Buy credits".
Purchasing 200 credits or more will qualify for volume discount. Use the slider on the SMS purchase page to select how many SMS you'll need.
When you buy SMS credits, those can then be used on all your booking pages and even your teammates' pages!
