After the order is confirmed credit will be added to your account.
Configure the SMS Service at your application side.
All you need to do is to download and install one of the tools/components we offer that integrate the SMS gateway API.
In Configuration, enter your ARTIO username and assigned API key. The API key is found at the SMS Service Dashboard.
The final step is to set what and when you want to send.
You can configure individual message texts for different occations, such as when an order status is changed (SMS to customer) or new order notification (SMS to shop owner).
You can also set limit conditions based on geographical areas or exclude certain number types.
Congratulations, now you are all set and you can start sending SMS to your website users!
You can now of course configure some additional settings, such as configure the message wording, conditions when a message gets sent, etc. These may differ for individual tools. Please, refer to the individual tool/component documentation for details on additional configuration.
