What is business SMS?

SMS for business, better known as business texting, lets you conveniently send and receive text messages on your business phone number rather than your personal number.

Provide quick updates to customers, confirm appointments, and reply back using the same recognizable number you take business calls on.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I send texts internationally?

Only between the US and Canada for now. With very few exceptions, Grasshopper business texting works for toll-free and local numbers in both countries. Note that we can’t send texts from a toll-free number to a Canada number just yet, but we’re working on it. We’re also looking to add more countries, so stay tuned!

Is there a limit to how many texts I can send?

Nope. We’re all about being limitless, so send as many business SMS messages as you want.

I’m already a Grasshopper customer. How can I add the business SMS feature to my number?

Easy. Just log in to your online account, head to the Settings page, and add the feature. You can also call us at (800) 279-1455 if you’d like a hand.

How will I know when a business text comes in?

Every text will show up in the Texts section of the Grasshopper apps. You can also enable push notifications so you’ll always know right when they arrive, just like you would with your personal text messages.

Can I send a group text message with Grasshopper?

Yep, but there’s one restriction. Group texting for business only works if you are sending from a local Grasshopper number. It’s not possible yet from toll-free numbers. And just a heads up, everyone on the group message thread will see all the recipients’ numbers and all replies.

Can I send picture messages (MMS)?

Yep, but there’s one restriction. Picture messaging (MMS) for business is not possible yet from toll-free numbers. But for any of our local numbers, you’re good to go!
