  • Text (up to 60 characters, can consist of 1 custom field).

The footer is a mandatory text field that includes the opt-out to prevent your number from getting blocked or reported as spam.

The welcome series template has two options for the interactive buttons:

  • Store link button: contains your store link. We will automatically add the link to the button; you can only change the button label.
