WooCommerce SMS Twilio

How to Add SMS To WordPress w/ Twilio

How to easily add SMS Messaging to WordPress/WooCommerce with Twilio!

If you are interested in getting notifications of new orders, order status or other sms notices then here is a simple solution that works.

You will need:

– Twilio.com Account
– WordPress/WooCommerce
– Twilio SMS Notifications Plugin

 

We have provided a QUICK Setup below to get you started. If you are interested in the full documentation and setup, you can read WooCommerce Full Documentation on How To Add the Twilio Plugin and Configure Twilio and Firebase Here: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/twilio-sms-notifications/

 

STEP 1:

Go to Twilio.com and sign up for an account. You will need to buy a phone number to use with this account and typically runs $1.00 per month on top of the message charges.

Once you have the account, you will need to copy the Account SID & Auth Code.

STEP 2:

Purchase the Plugin –> from here : https://woocommerce.com/products/twilio-sms-notifications/

Login to Worpdress and Add the Plugin and Activate it

Once it is installed, roll your mouse over WooCommerce in your WordPress Dashboard and select SETTINGS

Select the TAB  “SMS” from the top and then scroll down and enter the phone number you got from twilio above.  If in U.S. it should start with  +1  then the phone number.  Example:  +14093332222   Must be the number from your twilio account.

Then enter the SID and AUTH TOKEN.

Select SAVE at the bottom of the page. You can now scroll down to send a test message to yourself and you should get it.

If you need to ADD more phone numbers to receive messages, you will need to FIRST add them to Twillio as VERIFIED #’s then go into WooCommerce –> Settings –> SMS and add them to the ADMIN NUMBERS with the following format separated by commas with NO SPACES.EXAMPLE:   3 phone numbers.   (619)555-1212   (619)222-1111     (619)333-1111   would need to be added as  16195551212,16192221111,16193331111

Notice I added a “1” in front of each of the phone numbers. This is the country code for the United States. Add your country code without the + sign. Otherwise, it will not work correctly.
