This article is specifically aimed at Merchants who wish to enable our integration with SMSBump.
What is SMSBump?
SMSBump (Yotpo SMSBump) is an SMS marketing platform with best-in-class features. It allows you to contact customers in the moments that matter most with targeted SMS campaigns and automations. With SMSBump you can seamlessly grow your SMS & email lists, recover abandoned carts and send revenue-driving texts and emails.
What are the benefits of integrating Happy Birthday with SMSBump
If you'd prefer to send out your Birthday message and discount code via SMS, then our integration with the very popular SMSBump Sales Channel could be the best solution for your Birthday Club.
Shopify Merchants can allow customers to checkout using only a mobile phone number, therefore you won't always collect an email address with which to send the Birthday email and discount to.
By enabling the SMSBump integration, customers can still join your Birthday Club on the order status page without the need to enter their email address.
When we're due to send out the Birthday email, if we only have the customer's phone number and the SMSBump integration is live, then we'll push the Birthday message and discount code over to SMSBump for sending via SMS.
If a discount is included in the birthday message, it will be a link within the SMS which when clicked, will take the customer directly to a discount page where it can be applied to start a shopping session.
Requirements for the SMSBump integration
You will also need your SMSBump API Key. We have an article on how to request your SMSBump API key if you don't already have it.
To begin, you will need to enable the integration between the Happy Birthday app and SMSBump. Please read the next article in this series to find out how to enable the SMSBump integration.
