Hello!

Are we speaking of SMS? Sending SMS with the details of the purchase may not be cheap depending on the details length (remember that an SMS has a maximum length of 160 characters). You could send an SMS with a link to the purchase and a short message instead.

Now, for sending them, the easiest way would be to use an API. I haven’t used any SMS API, but I’ve read good reviews of Twilio SMS. The service pricing is pay as you go, which means they won’t charge you if you don’t use it, otherwise each SMS starts at $0.0075.

I hope it helps and good luck on your project :slight_smile:,

Regards!
