Enabling the integration
Go to the Happy Birthday app in your Shopify store and click through to the Integrations tab within the main menu.
Scroll down the list of available integrations until you find the SMSBump integration.
Click on the View Details button:
Click on the Enable SMSBump Integration button:
The page will refresh and you will presented with a single configuration field called SMSBump Integration Settings:
Enter your SMSBump API Key into the field and then hit Save Settings:
The integration between SMSBump and the Happy Birthday app is now live and customers that checkout using their mobile phone number (if enabled in Shopify) will be able to sign-up to your Birthday Club.
The SMS preference is also available to any customer
If a customer uses their email address to checkout, they will also have the option to receive their Birthday message via SMS or email:
Selecting the Send my birthday message via SMS checkbox will then display a Mobile Number field where the customer can enter their mobile/cell number:
Similarly, if the Birthday sign-up page has been enabled in your store, the sign-up form will also provide the ability for the customer/visitor to choose to receive their Birthday message via SMS:
All they need to do is add in their mobile phone number, complete the rest of the form and sign-up:
If a customer selects SMS as their preference and signs-up, they will be added to your Birthday Club with a preference for receiving the Birthday email via SMS, which can be seen in the Customers view of the Happy Birthday app:
Those customers will then receive their Birthday message via SMS.
Now that the SMSBump integration has been enabled, you'll need to configure the SMS message that will be sent out via SMSBump.
