Just enter the balance limit and the desired amount you want your wallet topped up to. You can change these settings whenever you want. When you reach the set lower minimum, the needed credit will automatically be added. This is then charged to your credit card and an invoice is sent to your billing address. This way, you will always have sufficient credit to send your campaigns.

  • System Generated emails

Also, we’ve updated the flow of automatically generated email updates from our platform. Notifications about pre-paid balance and invoices are now no longer sent to the commercial email address but to your billing address. This way, you can be sure each update reaches you correctly. Also, the update mails are now available in all languages supported by the platform and website. You can easily change the used email address in your profile settings.

  • Emoji

There are countless ways to write a persuasive (marketing) message in 160-characters. The most challenging part in communicating with such a limited amount of characters, is conveying the right intention. Emoji are here to help prevent miscommunication. With our latest update of the Send Messages app, using emoji is now easier than ever before. And because the Emoji can have different meanings in different countries, they can be changed in the translations app for a more local focus of your messages.
