SMS Notification for RestroPress enables functionality to get notifications for both Customers and Store owners when any order has been placed.

When the Customer places an order then the addon sends the SMS to the customer on their mobile number which they have entered in the checkout page. In the same way store owner also gets the notification about the order details on their phone number which they have set in the settings panel.

This addon also sends the notification whenever the order status changes. In this way, both the Customer and Store owner can track the order easily.

Currently this addon supports Twilio and Plivo SMS system. If you want to integrate any custom SMS service then let us know. We will definitely do that for you.
