SMS when payment received per SMS

Post by cycloshost »

Hi,

we have set up a special transaction type only to access with the SMS channel. We would like that the members receiving payments through this transaction would receive an SMS.

We saw in products the possibility of setting the SMS for all payments received. Of course, this would be extremely resource-consuming, so most transaction types shouls be notified by email and only the ones made by sms, by sms.

Is there a way of restricting the SMS received payment notifications for selected transactions only?

Thanks!

Hi,

This is not possible. We will put it on the discussion list.

Hi,

we would like to re-open this discussion. The use case is member to member payments per SMS (both members have the mobile at the time of transaction but not the internet access so the receiver cannot check the email).

We think it would be useful an option of setting SMS received payment notification only for the payments made via SMS, not for all the payments.

What do you think?

Hi,

Cyclos 4.3.2 has a option at transfer type to enable/disable the notifications.
Maybe you can use this option, disable for others transfer types and leave enable only for the transfer type used on SMS payments.

Hi Alexandre,

to make it work, in the member product we have to:
1. Enable the notifications type "Accounts" and make it default by SMS.

Then in the transfer types, we have to:
2. Disable "Send payment received notification" in all transfer types of all account types except for the SMS transfer type.

The result of this configuration is that the SMS is received when an SMS transfer type is received. But the problem is that we sacrifice the email notification for all the rest of transfer types.

I think maybe the solution is to offer a new option at transfer type level (only for transfer types that have enabled the SMS channel) to allow SMS notification of receiving payment for this particular transfer type.

Hi Cycloshost,

We understand the issue. We will do our best to put this option in one of the comming versions. We can however not give any estimation when it will be included.

Hi, is this solved in version 4.4?

We noticed that in Notification settings there is a new Type "SMS" enabled and set by default for SMS.
