SMS Pricing for Ecommerce Marketing

Done-for-you onboarding & only pay for what you send

In ecommerce, SMS pricing isn’t just costly. It’s confusing.

Especially for DTC brands who suspect they’re overpaying … and don’t trust the “results.”

That’s why we make it easy on you in two ways.

Oops, something went wrong! Please try again!

Most providers hide the true cost of SMS behind free or low-priced monthly contracts.

On the surface, rates don’t vary much. But it’s easy to get fooled.

Hidden differences add up to big charges — like platform & contact fees, automatic upgrades, or getting double billed for MMS + SMS. Worse, “view” attribution inflates reported revenue.

At Recart, all you’ll ever pay for are your texts. You’ll see real costs in real dollars before hitting send.

And we only attribute revenue through clicks or unique discount codes.

That’s ROI. So that’s what we’ve built …

Done-For-You SMS Growth

Other SMS providers use words like white-glove, concierge, or top-tier customer support. We use Customer Success Manager (CSM). And it’s so much more than different words.

Every account is backed by a team of experts to set you up for success. Plus, all non-starter plans come with a dedicated SMS professional to grow your SMS channel for you.

SMS Onboarding & Pop-Ups
Onboarding & Popups

From integrations across your marketing stack to designing custom popups.

From importing contacts and cleaning your list … to managing segments while safeguarding compliance.

We take care of everything so your text marketing hits the ground running.

SMS Campaigns & Automation
Campaigns & Automations

Every week (or even every day), your CSM will create and send campaigns.

On top of that, we’ll put revenue on autopilot for you with at least five flows:

  • Welcome Flow of 3–5 Messages
  • Browse, Cart & Checkout Abandonment
  • Personalized Receipts & Fulfillment
  • Post-Purchase to Drive Reorders
  • Custom Triggers with Time-Delays
SMS Reporting & Day-of Responses
Reporting & Day-of Responses

Always be in the know. Never go it alone.

You’ll get weekly reports and a monthly deep-dive to review performance as well as leverage new opportunities.

And we’ll respond to all requests or questions within 24 hours or less through whatever channel you prefer.

Ready to Get Started?

Find out if Recart can drive incremental revenue, acquire new customers, and increase your reorders + retention.

Schedule your 30-minute demo. If we’re the right fit, we’ll set up everything for you (seriously, everything).

Frequently Asked Questions About SMS Pricing, Platforms & Plans

How quickly can I launch my SMS marketing software or migrate?

With our comprehensive onboarding, you’ll be up, running, and selling in 2–5 business days. After reviewing your ecommerce business’ marketing and SMS strategy, we’ll take care of …

Legal compliance
Integrations or custom APIs
Onsite popups for mobile vs desktop
Importing SMS subscribers, lists & segments
Building your flows, campaigns & customer journey

Then implement everything.

What if I use more SMS or MMS Messages than I have in the plan?

Don’t worry, if you send more messages than are in your plan, we simply use your message rate at the end of the month.

For example, on the Annual Scale Plan, send 5,000 more SMS messages than the 100,000 allotted, and you pay the unit price displayed ($0.007 + $0.003 carrier fee per message) — a cost of +$50.

Also, rest assured that we’ll alert you before you exceed your plan … so you’ll never end up with unexpected charges at the end of the month.

What’s the difference between toll-free phone numbers and short codes?

Toll-free numbers are 10-digit phone numbers: (800) 412-3714. They work well for ecommerce businesses with 20k–30k SMS subscribers. And, they cost less.

Short codes are 5–6 digit numbers like 57124. They’re easier to remember, especially if you use keyword opt-ins (which are also part of every plan).

Both deliver messages above 98% success rates. The main technical difference lies in throughput. Essentially, short codes send faster.

Will I have marketing automations beyond abandoned cart?

Absolutely. Alongside welcome flows, three types of abandonment, transactional messages (like receipts + shipping and fulfillment notifications), post-purchase for related products, and time-delayed replenishment texts…

Our segment-based triggers can construct any functionality your brand might need. Some of our favorites include:

VIP rewards based on purchases or dollar amounts
Non-buyers who have engaged with other campaigns
New customers within your ideal repurchase window
Soon-to-lapse customers by last purchase date
Educational sequences for onboarding and upselling

Do you have a library of SMS marketing campaign templates?

We do. Scores of them! Pre-built and ready to deploy in a few clicks. Most surround popular US or North American holidays. That way, you and your team never run out of inspiration.

You can even choose specific industries or verticals within the holidays — like “End of Summer Sale” for fashion, nutrition, jewelry, or cosmetics.

Of course, we don’t merely give you access and then sit back.

Your CSM works side-by-side with a team of other SMS experts who are constantly sharing ideas, finding creative ways to engage your customers, and proactively loading up your account with the best of the best.

How do you manage compliance and deliverability?

SMS is a highly regulated channel; subject to different rules, protocols, and carrier requirements.

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) governs through two main laws: the TCPA and the CAN-SPAM Act. SMS also has a set of principles called CTIA Guidelines — implemented by a trade association representing the wireless communications industry in the United States.

For all its complexity, your CSM’s job is to ensure full TCPA, CAN-SPAM, and CTIA compliance while guaranteeing a high return on investment.

How is SMS revenue attributed versus email or other platforms?

Attributed revenue is the number one performance indicator of any marketing channel. Unlike other solutions — like Klaviyo for email + SMS or SMS-only (e.g., Attentive, SMSBump, Postscript, etc.) — we don’t want to inflate our value.

Although 1-day “view” (receipt) and 30-day clicks make SMS look great, those bars are too low to truly count as incremental revenue. In most cases, they represent customers who would have bought from you anyway.

Instead, we attribute a sale to Recart only when a customer clicks on an SMS link or uses a unique discount code.
