Send Personalized SMS (Publipostage)



This option allows you to personalise your SMS for each of your recipients.
You can do this personalisation on your own, but this requires you to send us as many requests as there are phone numbers, which can take several minutes depending on the size of your lists.
Thanks to Octopush publipostage mailing option, your mailing will only take a few seconds for all your contacts.
