Compare Postscript for SMS marketing
8,000+ Shopify stores prefer Postscript
Postscript is building the best-in-class SMS platform for Shopify merchants. No distractions.
Our competitors are building all-in-one marketing solutions where SMS is just one feature. They’re also trying to service multiple ecommerce platforms and additional industries. This lack of speciality results in them being slow to innovate and their platform becoming clunky and difficult to use.
We focus on what we do best—SMS marketing. We are building a best-in-class platform that is deeply integrated in the Shopify ecosystem. It’s no surprise that we’re often the first to bring innovative features to market.
Postscript believes in a different way to do SMS than our competitors.
Conversational two-way messaging IS the way to stand out with customers. But our competitors often preach SMS strategies that just end up annoying them.
Our philosophy on SMS marketing leads to a better experience for your subscribers. They’ll actually enjoy getting a text from you—not get annoyed by it.
Enables you to send highly segmented campaigns.
Helps you craft a unique SMS strategy and infuse your brand voice in text messages so you can stand out from your competitors.
Promotes ways to use SMS for more than just promotions. Our brands use SMS for customer support, retention, and engagement.
Push you to send at least 8-12 full-list promotional blasts per month to maximize their profits. This leads to high unsubscribe rates.
Teach the same one-size-fits-all SMS playbook for all their customers.
Tend to use the same pre-written texts and promotions for multiple customers.

Postscript enables you to deeply segment and personalize your messages.
Postscript has several features that our competitors lack that help you send fewer, more targeted messages:
SKU-level segmentation for automations (allowing you to optimize SMS automations based on what a customer has or hasn’t purchased)
65+ event triggers to build automations for cart abandonment, order and shipping notifications, subscription management, and more (some of our competitors give you as few as 6 event triggers)
40 user filers to build an unlimited number of subscriber segments as granularly as you’d like
The result? Lower program costs and a median ROI of 31X across all 8,000-plus Postscript brands.
The friendliness, knowledgeable help, and speed that allows me to quickly and effectively get my SMS work done is everything.
“The best sales tactic isn’t a sales tactic. It’s building a relationship with people you enjoy working with. My experience with Postscript has been perfect even before we signed up. Postscript has been a game changer for me and the results speak for themselves.”
Postscript gives you complete control over your account and data.
In ecommerce, you need to move quickly. Postscript gives you the freedom to control every part of your SMS program and account so you can:
Download any of your segments and your subscriber list whenever you want. We don’t keep your data hostage like some of our competitors.
Honor that 2:00 AM inspiration. Create campaigns, automations, segments on your own. You don’t need to wait 24-72 hours for an account manager to respond to your request.
But freedom to do this on your own doesn’t mean you’re alone. Read below about the support we provide to brands of all sizes.

"Support asked me if there was anything else they can help me with, and I jokingly said, 'Sure, help me make more sales.' Sure enough, Shannon (CS rep) told me she will do an account audit and literally found me ways to make more sales. I mean c'mon, if that's not great customer service, I truly don't know what is!”

Postscript pricing gives you flexibility with your content and creative
We want brands to focus on what they're telling subscribers—not how many characters they're typing. That's why we've created a transparent pricing structure with flexible options for sending content-rich messages without being charged for multiple messages.
As you explore pricing for other solutions, be sure to consider:
Real-time billing visibility. Can you easily access your running total for each month, or do you have to wait for your bill to see your charges?
The true cost per message. Are carrier fees clearly broken out?
Support for two-way messaging. Is there a fee for incoming messages?
The cost of delivery failure. Do you pay for messages that fail to send?
Rollover credits. If you must purchase credits upfront, what happens to those left over at the end of your billing cycle?
Character limits. At what point are you charged for an additional message—particularly for MMS? Postscript allows up to 1,600 characters per MMS—with or without emojis. (Learn more here.)
Unsubscribe rates. How much will you have to spend to replenish and grow your list if a high percentage of subscribers churn out?
Platform segmentation capabilities. Will you waste money sending texts to subscribers who aren't the best fit for a particular message?
Postscript’s pricing structure and platform capabilities are built to drive long-term SMS value for your brand.
In my first month with Postscript, I’ve spent $500 and we’ve made $25,000.
“Postscript has been totally different from Attentive. The pay structure is far more beneficial. And the ROI is far greater. I thought we were making a lot with Attentive, but I’d spend $2,300 a month and make $6,000 from text marketing. In my first month with Postscript, I’ve spent $500 and we’ve made $25,000."
