Magento SMS is a Magento extension that provides SMS alert and notifications integrated in to your eCommerce store. Merchants can now seamlessly extend their Magento stores to send SMS alerts as part of their eCommerce strategy. The extension is compatible with versions Magento 1.4.x to Magento 1.7 and has flexible configuration options.
Native Magento Extension
The Magento Extension is built strictly compatible to the Magento development guidelines and feels like an inherent module within Magento that allows merchants to send SMS.
You have complete control over the events for which you want the extension to send SMS. Various events for which you can send the SMS are signup, forgot password, one page checkout, multi page checkout, order shipping, payment receipts and many other events in the Magento store. You can switch on or off the events for which you want SMS alerts to be sent.
For each event that SMS alerts are enabled, you can configure two types of text messages. A message that is sent to the customer and a different message that can be sent to back office staff. The message configuration provides options to combine static text with variables in the context of the transaction and create a customized message alert for each event.
Collect Mobile numbers on Signup
Installing the extension will add fields to a customer entity and collect the information at customer signup and order checkout pages. The mobile number collected contains a country prefix allowing the module to send text messages to global recipients.
The extension is compatible with versions Magento 1.4.x to the latest version 1.7. The extension is strictly Magento compliant and would inherently support higher version releases of Magento.
