Most of the e-commerce websites are fully integrated with different ways to send notifications to their users. However most of these notifications are not read and they don't bring your website a real advantage over the other ones. We wanted to integrate AcySMS with HikaShop to give our users the possibility to use the most efficient communication way to contact and inform their customers. With a reading rate higher than 95% the SMS is the most powerful way to contact your client for sending them discount, news and many other informations.
Using this integration you will be able to

 

Send a message containing the user firstname

This example will show you how to add user informations in your SMS. This will allow you to create only one SMS and send it to all your users without changing their informations manually.

  • Once AcySMS installed and configured, access the menu "messages"
  • Click on the "new" button to create a new SMS
  • Enter a subject (it won't be visible for your users, it's just a way to easily find back the message)
  • Select a category (this is not mandatory... it's only if you want to group your SMS)
  • Select your sender profile (you can select the "test" one if you only want to test it without any SMS being sent... you will see them in the queue or in the stats to follow the whole process)
  • Enter your message using tags to personalize it... For example:

Phone number validation (Collect on delivery payment method)

When somenone purchases one of your products and select the "Collect on delivery" payment method you're never sure that the customer is a real person.
Using the phone number validation feature you will be able to make sure that you can deliver your products.

First of all you need to add the phone number verification in your process.

 

On the front end, once logged the users will see a new button to send them a validation code.

Once the button clicked, a new field will be displayed to enter the verification code.
If the code is correct the user will be redirected to the next page of the process. If not a message will be displayed and the user won't be able to go ahead.
