How to Install and Configure SMSBump in Shopify

Shopify is a synonym for simplicity, and that also goes for installing and configuring SMSBump in your E-Commerce store.

Let’s begin by entering the Shopify App Store to find SMSBump.
 


 

In the search field on the upper right corner, start typing SMSBump and the app will be shown. Click on it to continue.
 


 

When you open the app page, you will see all of the details and information about the service as well as contact details for the developer.

To continue, simply click on Get.
 


 

The next page will ask you to confirm the installation of SMSBump in your Shopify store. Click on Install App to continue.
 


 

Next comes the confirmation page that notifies you of the successful installation of SMSBump. You will need to fill in your email address, country code and phone number. When you are done, click on Connect to continue.

Important: You have an option to reset your account and start over with setting up your connection. This is in case you make a mistake during the configuration.
 


 

After you are finished with your details and click Connect, you will see a confirmation popup that lets you assure this is the right phone number.
 


 

After confirming your phone number, you will receive a verification code to your phone as a text message. Type it into this field and click Confirm to continue.
