@tubtreats Yes! You can set up an Alphanumeric Sender ID (for free) and only send to Australian numbers, if you prefer.

Hi @anthonydelpizzo  - I understand the Pricing Model of 3 Credits per message, same as the UK, but what does one SMS cost in cents in Australia? thanks

Hi @Karlbob,

 

Thanks for sharing your question for us! Would love to give some insight here.

 

SMS for Australia is also calculated through credit as well, not in cents. In Australia, one SMS message counts for three credits. This concepts is explained further in our helpful documentation on how Klaviyo bills for SMS. You pay for a pricing model that has a certain amount of available credits each month! 

 

Thanks for your participation!

May have been asked before but can you have

  • more than one SenderID saved in your account  - example company “PetsRUs” and can you also have “PetRUsVIP”….or can you only ever have one SenderID at a time?
  • An Australian mobile number instead of the free US number?

Hi @Karlbob

 

You can only have one SMS senderID per account. I would recommend investigating our wide-ranging and insightful documentation on Differences in SMS by country and Compare SMS sending numbers for the UK and AU to give you more insight into our SMS practices, especially in Australia.
