SMS Credits

Important: Administrative permission is required to access the Zift123 Settings. For more information, contact your supplier point of contact. 

Overview

In some parts of the world, Short Messaging Service (SMS) or text messaging is preferred over email. Typically, this applies to countries where internet access is poor but the population does have cell phones, smartphones, and tablets. Before using SMS, be sure to check for current rates and charges with various carriers. We have listed some information below, but the SMS marketplace is always evolving.

Zift123 administrators are able to purchase SMS credits from within Zift123. Once the credits are purchased, your users are able to use SMS for marketing purposes.
