Overview

Note - This module is an add-on of Webkul's Marketplace Module. To use this module, you must have purchased and installed Multi Vendor Marketplace first.

Twilio is a cloud communications (PaaS) company based in San Francisco, California. Twilio allows software developers to programmatically make & receive phone calls and send & receive text messages using its web service APIs. Twilio's services are accessed over HTTP and are billed based on usage.

Twilio SMS Marketplace Add-On allows merchants to text SMS directly to the sellers. These SMS are sent at the time of seller approval, disapproval, product approval, disapproval, order status cancel, invoice, shipment and credit memo generation.

This add-on is useful for notifying the seller by text SMS. Whenever there is an update about seller approval/disapproval, product approval/disapproval, order status cancel, invoice, shipped, credit memo and the product is sold. The seller will get the notification through the SMS on mobile phone at the same time of the updates related to the seller and his products.

For example: Suppose a customer buys the product of the seller and the admin generates its invoice then in that case the seller will get the notification at the same time regarding the invoice generation.

And also that SMS notification will consist of the order id for the same order, this helps the seller to keep track on the order status and also updates the seller regarding the product status at the same time.
