SMS Welcome Flow
Question regarding the SMS welcome flow. Today is the first day we launched the SMS capture pop up that enters users into the welcome flow once they've consented. Essentially we would want the welcome text to deliver to them as soon as possible, but, if a customer consents after 9PM(local time zone) a text could technically be sent after hours. I can only set the time delay to specific times of day/ days of week so I'm curious on what the best practice is for this?
Profile just for SMS

Checkout event is not working
Hi, Its been many days now and i am unable to connect with any of the klaviyo support. I also emailed to klaviyo but unfortunately i didn’t got any response. I am facing an issue that needs immediate resolve as my abandoned cart flow is not working and the checkout event is not been triggered properly. Further i purchased the sms plan and it shows the same error that “We have not yet received any Started Checkout events from WooCommerce”. I have checked again and again all my settings and integrations with woocommerce but still no resolve. I know klaviyo is a strong platform and i shifted from mailchimp to klaviyo but this issue is testing me to its best. I hope i would get some help from the klaviyo team. Looking Forward

Seperate Welcome Flows for Mobile SMS Consent
From what I can tell you can’t really separate Welcome Flows for SMS signups that come from a mobile form (the one where you just click and it pulls up your messages with a text to join). We have that form as a second step on our welcome popup but we’re also using another version embedded for periodic AMA with our brand ambassador. When we do the AMA’s it would be great to trigger a different flow than here’s your 15% off coupon, and more like “Hey, here for an hour or so AMA”. While the welcome popup should always just be doing it’s thing and triggering the welcome flow that sends out the first time purchase coupon. The reason I can’t figure out how to do this is because it appears the mobile SMS signup doesn’t send a $source attribute with it. Is there another way to accomplish what I’m trying to do?
SMS Welcome Flow - Do Thank You Messages Count Toward Monthly Send Total
Hey, I’m in the process of setting up SMS Marketing and wondered if anyone can tell me if I include a ‘thank you’ text to those who have consented to SMS within my already existing Email Welcome Flow - Dos this text count as part of your monthly send limit.So this could essentially use up all my monthly messages, depending on the volume of sign ups? I couldn't see this information anywhere, so apologise if it’s already out there.ThanksShelle
Click-to-Text Email Banners
Looking to add a click to text email banner within our welcome series, but with the limitation to the Click-to-Text links in that they are not supported by all applications (for example Gmail and Outlook), so those users will not be able to click on them, is there a way to reach those using those applications?

SMS Skipped - Unable to Send SMS
Hi Community. I’ve created an SMS campaign to send, Canada based. All profile Consent was obtained and imported, my toll-free number is not verified (but I read that meanwhile it’s under process of verification, I can still send SMS). However, once I clicked send after awhile it prompted SMS skipped - unable to send SMS. I also tried un-clicking smart send to give it a try, still does not work.Any idea what’s the issue here? Any help would be appreciated!
Can you require Double Opt In for Email but not SMS?
For my main list of contacts I had “Double Opt In” enabled - I noticed that a contact did not confirm via email for double opt in, so he was never added to my main list or my “Person is consented to receive SMS” segment. I removed double opt in so now anyone that fills out my form and has phone included will be added both to my main list and SMS segment. Ideally I would like it so that I can just require double opt in for emails, and single opt in for sms. Is there any way to do this?
Is Klaviyo SMS available in Canada?
Hi everyone, I understand that at the moment SMS on Klaviyo is only currently available in the US, but as I was just working through the flows today I saw this on the SMS message template:SMS for CanadaI can’t seem to find any information on this on the help center and on the community posts, so I was just wondering if any of you have tried this yet?Thanks!
List not updating (SMS contacts)
Hello, I am new on Klaviyo, I created a List and linked to a Sing-up Form where the client can get a 10% discount if he gives me his/her mobile number.I tried some tests with friends and family but even though the sign-up form registered 11 submission, the list is still empty, while the “profile” section is correctly working.It may be useful to you to know that in the Opt-in process I flagged “single opt-in”. What could it be? Can anybody help me?Thank you in advance
EMAIL and SMS Attribution When Both Are Engaged
Hi everyone, this is Klaviyo’s attempt to explain their attribution model when both an email (campaign or flow) & SMS message are engaged.The bolded section doesn’t explain which channel earns the credit. In this case, which channel earns the credit if not email?Keep in mind that Klaviyo connects attribution to a customer's last interaction with your brand. So, if you have a flow email with a conversion window of five days, and an SMS message that immediately follows it with a conversion window of one day, and the customer interacts with both, we attribute the conversion to the SMS (the last interaction). If this customer converts outside of the SMS conversion window (over a day) but within the email conversion window (within five days), attribution will still not apply to your email since it came before the SMS interaction.
Why is my SMS Flow not triggering?
Hi Klaviyo Community - I recently set up SMS collection with a signup form. The signup form works perfectly, appearing as a fly-in after 15 seconds of browsing our site on mobile. However, once a customer opts-in to SMS, and received the initial confirmation message, the flow does not trigger. I set up the flow today, and when I preview the trigger, it shows the phone # I signed up with and says this # is eligible to enter my SMS flow. However, no phone #s entered the flow. Does anyone know why the signup form would be working, adding customers mobile #s to the SMS list, and then the trigger “joined SMS list” is active on the flow, but customers are not entering? Is it because I just set up the flow a few hours ago? Thanks!
