SMS Reminders are optional messages that receivers can sign up for when they receive RSVP events! At this time, the feature is only available to recipients within the United States, only appears on RSVP events, and is not removable.
The option will appear below your card image after you submit a Will Attend response:
Recipients who do not wish to receive SMS reminders can either click "skip," or do nothing, and they will not be signed up for them. They will still receive any reminders that the host sends through the Follow Up tool, but those arrive via email.
Recipients will be able to choose when they'd like to receive the reminder:
- 1 hour before the event
- 1 day before the event
- 1 week before the event
Standard messaging rates will apply if you choose to sign up, but you will not be charged by Paperless Post if you opt into this feature as a receiver.
Your phone number will not be used, sold or distributed to third parties and will only receive messages based on the criteria you've chosen - you can opt out of them at any time and will not automatically be signed up to receive them on each event unless you opt in.
