How Does the Opt-Out Process Work?

How Do My Contacts Opt Out and How Do I Know They Opted Out?

How to Opt Out?

Your contacts can simply reply to your SMS message with a single-word message STOP, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, and QUIT and they will be automatically excluded from future texts. The keywords are not case sensitive. NOTE: Opting out from SMS messages does not opt out from email distribution.

How Do I Know My Contact Opted Out?

Step 1 - Make sure you are logged in to your marketing dashboard. Navigate to "Contacts" on the top and select "Lists."

Pull a Report From SMSZap for opted-out messages

Go to your SMSZap Activity report https://app.smszap.com/sms-activity and in the top right corner filter the messages by "opted-out." This report will show all outbound messages that were attempted to send to contacts that opted out.

Here you can see all opted-out contacts. Additionally, you can click on "Export CSV" and have the replies exported to a CSV spreadsheet.

Note: The outbound messages attempted to send to opted-out contacts will be blocked by SMSZap and no charges for those messages will take place.
