Text Message Plugin


The Text Message Plugin by Biz Text lets your website receive and send text messages (SMS). You can reply and send text messages from your PC through WordPress or from your mobile phone. No Twilio account is needed.

The Text Message Plugin requires requires an affordable, no-contract, cancel any time Biz Text plan, see our plans at Biz Text Solutions. A Biz Text plan allows you to choose a ‘Biz Text Number’ which is a local phone (or toll free number). Your Biz Text Number is displayed on your website and it allows you to receive and send text messages.

When your website visitors send you a text, you can reply to those texts through your WordPress dashboard or forward those text messages to one or more mobile numbers. You can reply to texts from your mobile phone and your website visitors will never see your personal cell phone number.

You can also send texts from WordPress to a mobile number that has not texted you first. Your Biz Text Number can handle voice calls too so you don’t need a landline number nor do you need to display your mobile phone number to send and receive text messages.

The Text Message Plugin makes it easy for you to display your Biz Text Number on your website. Choose from link or button styles for your texting options, only your mobile visitors will see the option to text you, your desktop visitors will see your regular website.

To let your desktop visitors send you a text through a contact form that allows email as well, please install Text Contact Form plugin.
