Online Retailers Rely on SMS for Post Purchase Notifications

SMS notifications for online retailers

Thousands of online retailers rely on SMS for order notifications. For example, let’s say you just ordered a piece of furniture online. In the past, retailers would fire out email alerts post purchase. These alerts might include an order confirmation, shipping notification, order cancellation, out of stock notice, and more.

What are some of the benefits of choosing SMS alerts over email notifications?

1. SMS doesn’t rely on internet access.

Text messages come through whether you’re connected to wifi or not. This is an immediate form of communication, and allows your message to be instantly received and read by the recipient.

2. Your brand will stand out with this notification method.

This tactic hasn’t quite gone mainstream … yet. But it will. And why not be the brand that takes it there? Stay one step ahead of the curve with SMS notifications.

3. There’s a sense of immediacy.
