SMS alert Support is Extremely professional and timely We are so glad to thanks SMS alert backend support. we were using a separate plugin to send tracking details to the customer through SMS alert, we thought, it can be done directly with SMS alert. So we propose this to SMS support, they immediately responded to our Queries, added a PHP coding, now we can able to send SMS with a courier tracking AWB number and hyperlink. It is very helpful and working perfectly. They were extremely flexible and willing to support Customer requirements. Kudos to the team

Though this Plugin serves well that I show in Tutorial but not serving number of COUNTRIES! In this Plugin, You'll find that SMS services not available at many countries ! ! Plugin Developer not entitled COUNTRY list where they serve SMS service. So initially, you'll feel in great trouble whether your Country Eligible or Not ! ! Please hang a Country list or promote for all Countries to get service! Overall, functionality looks well . . but unfortunately I cant implement in my own Woo Store since SMS service not available in my Country !

Sorry to say. I had a bad experience. I installed and activiated the plugin based on a link in a YouTube video. Thought it worked fine. But I noticed that since afternoon (about the time I installed the plugin) I have not been receiving orders. When I went to the customer view I noticed that the customer is being asked to verify their number and when they enter their number it says "sorry you do not have any credits". I dont have to tell you how disappointed and frustrated I was. Also the video who referred this to me (where I'm going to post this comment) didnt mention anything about costs. I was not even able to test the software. Really this is disappointing.

The plugin seems to be working great. I love the fact I can track each text sent for its status. The costs per text are more than Twilio but if you include the number you have to pay for each month with Twilio, this service is cheaper.
