        What makes Yotpo SMS & Email email different from my current email provider?

        First, many email providers have limited packages that prevent access to certain features, or limit your number of subscribers, unless you pay a premium. We’re thrilled to offer all-access email marketing, so you can grow your list without increasing your cost. With unlimited contacts and features, you only pay for what you send, plus 10,000 free emails every month.

        This means you get advanced features like drag & drop email editor, a library of stunning templates, a full suite of subscriber collection tools and so much more, without price barriers. Secondly, we’re one app that does it all! With Yotpo SMSBump, you can grow your SMS & email lists, recover abandoned carts, and send revenue-driving texts and emails all in one place, in just a few clicks.

        2. Navigate to “Lists & Segments”, and create and name a new segment.

        3. Click on the 3 dots next to “View” to see a dropdown menu.

        4. Select “Import” from the menu to begin the import process.

        5. Select “Import from CSV” and attach the CSV file you received from your previous provider. Be sure to select “Import Email Subscribers” to show that this is email and not SMS.

        When is my billing cycle starting?

        • The billing cycle is unique per customer. The cycle renews every month on the same date. Unused email quotas will not carry over to the following month. 

        • For example, if you send your 1st campaign on January 15th, you will be able to send up to 10,000 free emails until February 14th. If you send 11,000 emails between January 15th and February 14th, you will be billed for 1,000 emails. On February 15th, you will be able to send another 10,000 emails for free.

        Will I see how much each campaign costs before I send it?

        • Before you send any campaign, you will be notified of the cost to send that campaign. 

          • If you do not have enough SMS & Email credits in your account to send your email campaign, when you proceed forward, you will be given an error message, until you upload more funds. After adding funds, your campaign will be sent.
