SMS notifications included inside WHMCS

Vincent S shared this idea 2 months ago
Under Consideration

I have some clients that do not check their email often.

I always manually send them an SMS using SMS global. They then pay a few hours later.

I think it would be a great idea to implant the use of SMS gateways into WHMCS without the use of addon modules.

We already have the client's mobile numbers data.

So an example would be that only when an invoice reminder email is sent, an SMS is also sent out notifying the client.

Kind regards,

Hi there,

Thanks for your suggestion. This sounds like the perfect opportunity for a module developer to create a Notification module: https://developers.whmcs.com/notification-providers/

Which SMS gateway would be people's choice?

We currently use 'MessageBird' along with a third-part module to achieve this. It would be great if WHMCS could implement this as standard.

Taking it a little further you could allow clients to choose which SMS alerts they'd like to receive... ie Payment failed, login in notification, invoice generated, password changed etc. That way they can opt-in to what's important to them without being overrun by alerts.

https://twilio.com/ also looks promising to use.
