Note: This feature is available at an additional cost of $0.03 (one credit) per message per recipient in the US and Canada. The service is also available in Australia for SMS only (no voice broadcast features), but at a slightly higher cost. Credits must be purchased prior to the use of this feature. Replies are not available.
Only admin users with access to settings have the permission to purchase credits.
To purchase credits, go to Settings > Setup > General Settings > SMS and Voice.
For customers in Australia, please contact iClassPro (Support@iClassPro.com) to start the setup process for SMS messaging (texting). Different setup and pricing applies for businesses located in Australia.
If you are a customer in the United States or Canada and have not used this feature before, upon opening the SMS and Voice settings, you will need to enter a local area code for the service to find an available phone number for the messaging service to assign to your account. This will be a no-reply number, so only outgoing messages will be sent. No replies are recorded.
Review Phone Number and Available Credits
If you have already completed setup, the window which appears under Settings > Setup > General Settings > SMS and Voice will show your assigned phone number. This number will be used specifically for your business to send outgoing voice broadcasts (to any phone) or text messages (to text-enabled phones) within your customer and staff lists.
