A few days ago, MailerSend officially launched transactional SMS on Producthunt, powered by the company’s new SMS API. This helps you reach more customers as well as improve your transactional communications.
Similar to MailerSend’s transactional email service, transactional SMS allows you to send important notifications and updates directly to your customers’ mobile phones.
For example, you can use the transactional messaging service to send them instant order confirmations, shipping updates, payment alerts, appointment reminders, 2FA, or subscription updates.
You can even schedule bulk SMS to be sent, for example, to avoid peak times or to synchronize delivery with an event. While you can send personalized text messages, you cannot use this service for marketing purposes.
Using the inbound routing feature, you can allow your recipients to reply and chat via SMS. Note that inbound SMS routing is currently only available in the United States. However, there are plans to expand this feature to other regions in the coming months.
MailerSend will soon release SMS templates and an option to attach media files like PNG, GIF, JPG, WAV and more.
Sound interesting? Start sending and receiving transactional SMS using MailerSend‘s official SDK libraries, including PHP, Python, Node.js, Ruby, and Java.
By the way, MailerSend recently launched a new in-app email verification tool.
