More Use Cases

Ordering

Shopping bag icon

Create an immersive ordering experience, and then let your users place orders using the mobile number right from your app. They just have to consent once, and then it's transparent—and easy. This is great for restaurants or any comapny that wants to allow thier customers to "order before you go."

Reservations

Two tickets icon

Allow your customers to share reservations with their friends and family. Plus, they can send images of hotels and vacation spots they like directly from your website before the trip is booked. The message is sent from a user's mobile number, so the recipient recognizes who it's from before the message is opened.

Social Sharing
