Reply to Buy SMS

Brands and retailers of all sizes are waking up to the benefits of adding shop-by-text campaigns to their existing marketing and outreach strategies.

Everybody reads text messages. SMS marketing is a fast way to reach the right people at the right time. (TechJury says that 60% of customers read texts within 1 to 5 minutes of receiving them.)

When phone calls go to voicemail and emails end up in spam folders, text messaging offers a reliable line of communication between you and your customers. SMS doesn’t have to replace emails or phone calls—it can be a complementary tool to enhance your customer engagement strategy.


How Does Reply to Buy with SMS Work?

You send a product offer in a text message campaign. Customers reply “yes” if they like what they see and want to buy. The transaction is processed directly in the text thread and the order is placed.

TextRetailer’s conversational automation and zero-click checkout make the buying process super simple. Payment and shipping info only needs to be captured once. From there, future orders can be placed within seconds.
