I like how they are always checking in and when a problem comes up they work on it until it is fixed.
“What I like best is how simple the site is to navigate. Other texting sites are not as easy to use. I also really like the price. Most other companies charge way more for much less.”

Frequently Asked Questions
The most secure method of offering a text-to-pay service is sending a client an SMS that includes a link to a secure mobile-friendly payment portal for which the client has to create an account and then log in to that account in order to make a payment. An affordable alternative to SMS text to pay, veterinarian practices already using a text messaging solution can send direct, two-way messages to clients about an invoice. Then the client can reply via text to agree to have the payment amount charged to the credit card on file. This way, no credit card information is sent via text message, which is not encrypted.
Marketing your veterinary practice, pet care service, or dog walking or grooming business should be a major part of your business plan. Even with a small marketing budget, pet care services can use text message marketing to generate new leads through an SMS Keyword campaign and incentive, like “Text PET to 858585 for 20% off your pet’s first checkup.” Additionally, pet care businesses are using veterinary text messaging solutions to automate appointment confirmations and billing reminders, and many veterinarians are even creating automated SMS marketing campaigns to remind pet owners of upcoming vaccination needs, monthly grooming alerts and promos, and notifications about new services.
