Introduction to SMS notifications

Any notification related to ScheduleOnce booking activity can be sent via SMS. You can send SMS notifications to your Customers and Team members anywhere in the world. 

We recommend using SMS notifications as a backup for email notifications. Emails are sometimes delayed due to slow Internet connections or other reasons. SMS notifications are several times more reliable and have a higher delivery rate and open rate than email. They are also useful if you want to provide a quick reminder about a booking to Customers or Team Members.

We use a reliable network that will always deliver and confirm receipt of your messages quickly, no matter what length the message is or where the receiver is located.

Worldwide reach

Because your Customers can be anywhere, we use a network that can reach any mobile number globally. ScheduleOnce uses a global telecommunications network that services 235 countries and territories. 

Enterprise-grade reliability

Your SMS notifications will arrive promptly. Our network uses lines that ensure direct number-to-carrier connectivity, reducing the time it takes for your SMS to arrive. No messages are lost to network outages because we use Adaptive Routing technology that chooses the best path for your SMS notifications. 

All SMS notifications are sent through our private dedicated short code, 75732. The short code lets carriers know that ScheduleOnce is a whitelisted service, ensuring that your SMS notifications are never labeled as SPAM.

Our SMS throughput is 100 messages per second, ensuring your SMS notifications will be timely and will never get stuck in a queue. In addition, all SMS notifications sent through ScheduleOnce get a delivery receipt directly from the receiver’s carrier, which confirms with 100% certainty that your message arrived.
