Each message is equal to one message to one phone number. In other words, if you have 250 subscribers on one of your lists and you send a text blast to that list 2 times, you've used 500 messages.
Textwords allow people to join your SMS marketing list by texting a word to your number. The process is very simple. When a customer sends your textword to your number, we'll send your customized auto-reply back and we'll add that person to your text messaging list. Each textword represents its own list.

We've heard nightmares about companies charging overage fees to their customers for going past their monthly text allowance. We don't let that happen! We'll just give you a heads up if you don't have enough texts left for that billing period to send your message. We'll just ask you to wait till your next billing cycle or upgrade your plan. That way there are no surprise charges, ever!
Most cellular carriers charge a small additional per-message fee to send texts on their networks. These fees vary based on the type of number you’re sending from, what country you’re sending in, and whether a message is an SMS or MMS message. We pass these fees through to you at no additional markup. You can learn more about carrier fees and how they work here.
