About ViralSweep

ViralSweep is a viral marketing platform with tools that enable you to create sweepstakes, contests, and giveaways for your shop.

Why You Should Set Up ViralSweep

  • Grow your SMS subscriber list with sweepstakes, contests, and instant-win prizes.
  • Collect and showcase user-generated content for your products.
  • Easily collect hashtag entries via Instagram and Twitter for your various promotions.
  • Network and collaborate with other brands in multi-brand giveaways.

Create a Postscript API Key

  1. Select your Shop Name in the side menu of your Postscript dashboard, then select API.
  2. Select Create Security Key Pair on the right side of the page, then confirm your action by selecting Yes.
  3. Select Show in the Private Key column to reveal your API key. Copy this key or write it down—you'll need to enter it in ViralSweep later.

Connect Postscript and ViralSweep

Once you have your private Postscript API key, you will enter it in the ViralSweep promotion you're creating.

  1. Select the Integration plug icon in the side menu, and then select Email & SMS.
  2. Locate Postscript in the list of available integrations, or use the search field at the top of the list.
  3. Enter your Postscript API Key in the corresponding field, then select Connect.
  4. You will need to choose a keyword for this promotion. We recommend creating a unique keyword so you can create a special welcome series or notification for subscribers who opt-in via this promotion. Once you've chosen a keyword, select Connect.

Compliance Language Requirements

When building a promotion in ViralSweep that will allow you to collect SMS subscribers, be sure to add a content block that includes TCPA-compliant language. This language informs visitors that they are opting into SMS messaging from your store.

Here's the TCPA-approved compliance language:

*By providing your phone number, you agree to receive recurring automated marketing text messages (e.g. cart reminders) from this shop and third parties acting on its behalf. Consent is not a condition to obtain goods or services. Msg & data rates may apply. Msg frequency varies. Reply HELP for help and STOP to cancel. You also agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

Note: In order to collect subscribers compliantly, your shop's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy need to be hyperlinked in the language shown above. If they cannot be hyperlinked, the full URLs of each need to be included so a viewer may search your terms or privacy policy if needed.

For example, "View our Terms of Service (https:/ and Privacy Policy (”

You should now be all set to get started with ViralSweep!

   Note: When collecting subscribers using a list growth integration, subscribers will be prompted with a "Reply Y to Subscribe" text to confirm their opt-in. This allows your shop to confirm they are a valid, consenting subscriber. This Reply Y interaction is automatic and cannot be disabled.
