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:

*I agree to receive recurring automated marketing text messages (e.g. cart reminders) at the phone number provided. Consent is not a condition to purchase. Msg & data rates may apply. Msg frequency varies. Reply HELP for help and STOP to cancel. View our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

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