How do customers Opt-in to my mobile campaign?

When you sign up for a ClearLine Mobile account, you are automatically given one mobile campaign of your choice. Additional keywords can be purchased and you can have an unlimited number of unique mobile campaigns. All your customer has to do is text your Opt-in Keyword to the shortcode and they can Opt-in to your mobile campaign. For example, if your keyword is WIN, your customer texts the word WIN to the assigned shortcode, local 10 digit or toll-free number. Your customer can just as easily opt-out of your mobile campaign by sending the word STOP as a reply to any message received.

Does ClearLine Mobile supports double opt-in required for the POS & CRM contacts?s?

Any mobile campaign that is ongoing requires a Double Opt-in procedure. This procedure starts with the user sending a text message with your Keyword to the assigned number. The user will then receive a message asking that they confirm their request to join your mobile campaign. By replying with YES, Y, OK, or SURE, the user confirms their opt-in request and is “Double Opted-in” to your mobile campaign. The user then receives a confirmation message stating the terms of the mobile campaign along with your contact information. Now, you are ready to start sending your user timely mobile alerts.
