When you click 'Send' on a message in Salesmsg, this text will be added to our current outbound queue to be sent as quickly as possible. Occasionally, the message may take a few seconds to go out. Fortunately, we'll show you in the application very clearly if there are any issues.

Delivered - the message has been sent and a successful delivery receipt has been collected by Salesmsg. Salesmsg shows you the timestamp it was delivered

Scheduled - any message that is scheduled to be sent will include a grey background until the message is sent at the scheduled time. You have the option to cancel the send of this message.

Failed - When your message is not delivered to its end destination, Salesmsg will display an error icon and error code to confirm why your message was not delivered. If you hover over the red icon, you'll see a specific error code outlining why the message was not received.

Frequently asked questions

Do I pay for messages that are not delivered?

Most of the time yes, every message Salesmsg attempts to send, whether it is delivered or not, will use message credits to attempt to send. If the message errors before we try to send it, it's free.

I'm doing everything right but my errors persist
