Frequently Asked Questions

BistroSMS is a text message promotions service designed for restaurants.  We help restaurants build a customer contact database, deliver daily or weekly text message promotions to customers and track redemptions.
No.  We help you to build your own customer database.
You are assigned a dedicated phone number and code.  When customers text the code to this number they are added to your database.  Signing up is that easy.

Most customers are willing to share their cell phone number if you give them an incentive.  'One Free drink' or 'One Free appetizer' or 'One Free dessert' are good examples of promotions that entice customers to sign up.  BistroSMS's 'Signup Incentive' feature helps you manage the signup process.
Yes.  Every text message promotion includes instructions on how to opt-out.  They just have to reply with STOP and will be taken off your list.
We do not share your contacts with anyone.  Only you can send text messages and promotions to customers in your list.
With targeted text message promotions you can increase sales with very little effort.  Most restaurants have a couple of slow days during the week.  Just a few more orders each on such slow days can mean thousands of dollars in increased sales for the year.
Our response rate graph shows how your promotions are doing and how they compare with one another.  
We recommend sending not more than 2 promotions per week.
The Free plan is for you to test drive the service and check out its features.  It is free indefinitely but has restrictions on number of contacts and messages you can send.
1 message credit = A message that contains upto 160 characters sent to or received from 1 recipient.
Example 1: If your message contains 150 characters and you send it to 40 customers, then you are using 40 credits.
Example 2: If your message contains 220 characters and you send it to 60 customers, then you are using 120 credits.
Example 3: If your message contains 300 characters and you send it to 10 customers, then you are using 20 credits.
If you don't use all prepaid message credits for the month, unused credits are rolled over to the next month so you don't lose them.  Rollover applies only to Paid accounts and not to Free accounts.
Monthly subscription fee is billed on the 1st of the month.
You can cancel your Paid account at any time by choosing 'Cancel Subscription' option.   Paid subscriptions run through the end of the month.  Your cancellation is effective at the end of the month.
