    API settings

    Here admin has to provide the account details for the SMS provider to be used. In order to get these account details admin will have to first register with the SMS provider.

    Register with SMS provider

    By default in Prestashop SMS notification module, three SMS providers are available.

    An admin has to register with any one of these SMS providers to get the account details.

    So, let’s see how to register and get the account details for all the three SMS providers and complete the configuration of the module.

    Plivo

    The first step is to sign up with the SMS provider. Go to www.plivo.com and click on sign up.

    9

    Enter your details to sign up

    10

    Once the signup process is completed, the admin can check plivo credentials here

    11

    After getting these credentials, now admin can complete the module configuration with plivo SMS provider.

    12

    Twilio

    First step is to sign up with the SMS provider. Go to www.twilio.com and click on sign up.

    13

    Enter your details to sign up

    14

    Once the sign up process is completed, admin can check Twilio credentials here

    So, this is how admin can register with the SMS providers and obtain the API credentials.

    The workflow of the module

    The buyers receive the SMS notification on the same number given by them in their information details.

    All the information related to the order, dispatch, cancellation, payment, delivery etc. are communicated to the buyer through SMS notification.

    22

    Also, the buyers can even change the registered mobile number at the time of checkout.

    23

    So, in this way buyers can also change the number while checkout.

    The same goes with the sellers as well. A seller receives SMS notifications on the number provided by them in their seller profile.

    The seller uses this same number to send all the SMS notifications related to their account and products activation/deactivation and order confirmations.

    24

    The seller can change the registered phone number any time from the Edit profile tab in the seller panel.

    25

    Thus, in this way, with the help of this module, the admin can send SMS notifications to the customers and sellers.

    So, this was all about the PrestaShop Marketplace SMS Notification module. I hope this document will help you in checking the functionality of the module in a better way.
