LumaBooth makes it easy to share using SMS by sending out the text messages on your behalf. As part of your subscription, we include up-to $3 monthly credit for sending SMS messages over the last 30 days. In the US and Canada, this will allow you to share hundreds of text messages to your guests. In other countries, the costs are higher and you might be able to share less messages. You can find the cost per message for your country on Twilio's site.
Unfortunately, it's not financially possible for us to offer unlimited SMS for everyone in all countries. If you use up your credits for SMS sharing in the last 30 days, you will not be able to send any additional SMS messages until you setup your own SMS account with Twilio. Twilio is a telephony provider that lets you buy a phone number and send the SMS messages through that number for you. Twilio's pricing is very competitive and all SMS charges go directly to them. In most cases, you will only spend a few dollars per month. Your cost will be number of messages sent X the cost per message in your country.
By getting your own number from Twilio, you will be able to:
- Provision a dedicated phone number.
- Forward text messages and phone calls from customers to your mobile phone number.
- Send unlimited SMS from your phone number.
- Ensure uninterrupted SMS sending without worrying about limits.
