  • Twilio Account Verification

    To use the plugin effectively, it’s crucial to have a paid Twilio account rather than a trial one. A paid Twilio account eliminates the need for manual verification of your customers’ mobile numbers. With a paid account, you can send SMS directly to any number without any verification process.

    After creating your Twilio account, follow these steps to enable SMS notifications for various activities:

    1. Access your Twilio account settings.
    2. Locate the SMS settings section.
    3. Enable SMS notifications for the specific activities you want to receive alerts for.

    When enabling SMS notifications, remember to:

    • Keep the SMS content concise, avoiding overly long messages that may get cropped.

  • Collect Mobile Numbers

    On the WooCommerce default checkout page, customers should enter their mobile numbers in the “Phone No” field, including the country code. For example, if a customer is from India, they should input their phone number as “+919876543210,” where “+91” represents the country code, and the rest is their mobile number.

I hope it helps. Please let us know if you need more assistance.
