Effective December 1st, 2023, the state of New Jersey (NJ) is imposing new compliance regulations (Bill S921) in addition to nationwide, federal TCPA regulations and industry standards required by cellular carriers. This regulation requires that brands disclose their business address in every message sent to New Jersey-based recipients.
Similarly, Canada’s Anti-Spam Law requires brands include their full business name, mailing address, and contact information when texting Canadian subscribers. Canada also requires that brands include an opt-out mechanism (e.g., “reply STOP to stop”) in every applicable message.
Understanding Business Links
Our goal is to absorb the heavy lifting of the ever-changing SMS compliance landscape by taking a product-led approach to compliance. This way, our merchants can spend more time optimizing their ecommerce brand.
We also want to be mindful of the impact including a full business address has on character count and therefore– cost per message.
With that in mind, Postscript is solving for both Canada and New Jersey’s new requirements by automatically appending a shortened business link to the end of all applicable messages with the required information when sending to subscribers based in New Jersey and Canada. Messages sent to Canadian subscribers will also automatically include opt out language (i.e., “reply STOP to stop”).
