Frequently Asked Questions
What countries does Textiful support?
Textiful uses a short code - 444999 - which only works with US based phone carriers. At this time, we do not support phone carriers outside of the US.
Is there a contract? Can I cancel my account?
There is no contract. Your account is month-to-month and you can upgrade, downgrade or cancel your account at any time.
Can my keywords sync to different email lists?
Yes! You can have each keyword sync to different email lists within you email marketing system.
What exactly are the "Outgoing Texts" mentioned in the pricing plans?
An outgoing text is considered any text that is sent to an individual's phone. This includes the messages that are sent to individuals when collecting email addresses through text messages.
Collecting an email address requires two outgoing texts - one to ask for the email address and another to send the confirmation message. In other words, if you collect 5 email addresses, it would cost 10 outgoing text credits. If you send a text campaign to those same 5 individuals later on, it would cost 5 outgoing text credits.
What happens if I run out of Outgoing Text credits on a paid plan?
Textiful will continue to function as normal - it will collect email addresses and send text messages. At the end of your billing cycle you'll be charged a fee of 7 cents per overage credit used. You are free to upgrade your account to the next tier at anytime to avoid the overage fee.
What happens if I run out of Outgoing Text credits on the Free Forever plan?
If you've added a credit card to your account and use more than the 50 credits issued per month, your account will be automatically upgraded to the Get Started plan for $14 /month and Textiful will continue to collect email addresses as normal.
If you do not have a credit card on file, your keywords will be deactivated and will no longer collect email addresses or send text messages until the following month when your monthly 50 credits are issued.
