FAQ

SMS stands for Short Message Service. SMS can be used to send text messages that contain up to 160 characters per message. SMS does not include data or pictures, just text.

MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service. While SMS limits a sender to 160 characters of plain text, MMS allows for the delivery of media files, like images, videos, and audio. MMS is also capable of delivering text messages up to 10,000 characters in length.

Nearly all phones purchased in the last ten years are capable of sending and receiving text messages.

A keyword may not be available because some other subscriber has already registered the keyword. Keywords are reserved on a first come first serve basis. WeText can check to see if the account that registered the keyword is an active account upon request. If another subscriber registered your desired keyword WeText Support can free the keyword for your business use if the previous account is inactive.

WeText offers more than just text messaging services. Our plugins allow customers to embed subscription, ticketing, merchandise sales, voting/polling and fundraising functionality into their websites.

It’s easiest to create a new account with the desired keyword rather than changing the keyword for the existing account. Billing info and Contacts can be copied over upon request. Please contact our support if you must change your keyword.

Text messages are a brief, effective, inexpensive means of communication. Most people carry their cell phones with them wherever they go. Text messaging is currently the most widely used app on all cell phones. 95% of all text messages are viewed within the first 10 minutes of receipt. This is an astounding number when compared with the open rate of email marketing (18-28%) or Social Media posting at 3%. Many studies have been done to determine how individuals would like to communicate with businesses and the number one answer was via text and by a wide margin among the desirable Millennial demographic.

Yes! That is exactly what your WeText account is for. We allow you to create and sort your contacts into lists in order to send bulk messages with the click of a button. The main benefit here is that none of your contacts will see each other in a message string like you see when you do group messaging via your cell contact list. Another big benefit is that if someone responds to your message it will only go to you.

Yes. They will be delivered to your WeText account. If you’d like, you can choose to forward your replies to your cell phone or your email address.

Text messages are usually delivered to mobile phones within a few seconds to a few minutes. On rare occasions due to third party cell providers and their network traffic there may be small delays.

Yes. Whenever a message leaves our system you will be charged for one message. So if you are sending 1 message to 100 people you will be charged for 100 messages.

As long as it’s under 1 GB, there are no other requirements. Whenever you send any type of an attachment through our platform it will automatically go through a conversion process that is seamless when used.

A keyword is a unique word or phrase that people can use to communicate with you via texting to a short code. This word should be synonymous with either your business name or product that you are selling.

The goal of using a keyword text messaging system is to build a mobile database. Your friends and customers can send a message containing your keyword to 48421 to join. Our system will automatically respond to them, with a unique message confirming that they have joined (“opted-in” to) your SMS/MMS system.

As long as the keyword you want is available, you can register it through your account. You can use any combination of letters and numbers. Remember to keep the keyword as short as possible so as not to confuse your customers.

No, but they are character sensitive. Your keyword must be one word. It can be two words but the space between must be removed.

Yes. This feature requires a non standard configuration. Please contact our support to learn how to configure your account for multiple keywords. A future version of WeText will support unlimited keywords from one user account.

According to carrier guidelines you must include the following information:

That message and data rates may apply
The frequency (e.g., max 2 messages per week)
Opt-out instructions (e.g., To unsubscribe, text STOP {KEYWORD} to 48421)

Short codes have been around for a number of years and have grown in popularity with the advent of smartphones. The code can be either 5 or 6 digits and it enables end users to easily communicate with businesses, charities and public figures. They are traditionally easy to remember and work across all mobile networks.

When you create a WeText account, we store your information on our secure database server. No one has access to your database or your personal information. If you would like to share the data in your account with someone else, you may choose to provide them with your login information.

Our database server is co-located at a data center that is secured via multiple perimeter access systems and fire-proof heavy-duty doors. The data center is equipped with 24x7x365 live video surveillance and multiple level independent fire-suppression systems. The data center is staffed 24x7x365.

Your contacts are kept in strict confidentiality. We do not share, rent, or sell the contacts belonging to our clients with any third parties. Your database and your personal information that you enter in your account belongs to you, and you alone.

When you go through the registration process we use a multi tiered security protocol to enable us to confirm that you are actually the user requesting to open an account.

I can’t click on the link in the text message.

If you have an iPhone, you may have run into this issue due to a previous Apple system update. There are a few fixes you can try yourself:

Exit out of the text message and then open it up again. The link should now appear blue and you should be able to click on it.
If the above does not work, try holding down on the text message for a few seconds. You should feel the text “pop” and you should be able to see the link in blue.
If neither of the two above do not work, edit the link in the Back Office by adding in “www.”
If you still have issues after trying all of the above, please contact us and we will do our best to help you find another way. We would also suggest sending feedback to Apple.

No, texting technology does not provide a way to determine when a subscriber actually opens or reads a message you send them. We do not have access to that information.

Building your database takes time and we advise you to have a promotion strategy in place with clear instructions on how to opt-in (texting your keyword to 48421). As there are many ways to promote your text campaign and encourage sign-ups, here are a few ideas to get you started:

Social Media
Email Blasts

Yes! We can reserve your keyword for you for an entire year for $19.99. If you already have one in mind, you can reserve it now here: https://wetext.co/api/signups.php?id=1048

You subscribers would simply need to text STOP to 48421 and it would remove them from any and all lists they may be subscribed to. To opt-out of one account only, they would text STOP {KEYWORD} to 48421.
