What strategy should I choose to send my SMS messages?

By default OxiSMS sends your SMS with the "commercial" strategy. It is often the most suitable.

The "commercial" strategy complies with the French law on commercial mailings: the sending of commercial messages is prohibited in the evening after 9 pm, in the morning before 8 am and on Sundays and public holidays. If you still send a "commercial" message during these periods, OxiSMS will automatically schedule your sending for the next allowed time slot.

In some cases, you may need to send non-commercial SMS messages that must arrive during prohibited periods for commercial messages. In this case, you must choose the "Notification"strategy.

For example, if you want to notify someone of an appointment date, you can choose the "Notification"strategy.

If your not sure, always use the "commercial" strategy or contact us.


"Commercial" strategy

As a reminder, commercial/marketing messages include any offer or promotion of a service, even free of charge.

  • This strategy integrates commercial/marketing communications.
  • Messages sent in the evening after 9:00 p. m., in the morning before 8:00 a. m. as well as on Sundays and public holidays will be processed in the next permitted time slot.


"Notification" strategy

This strategy should only be used in the following cases:

  • alerts
  • proactive notifications
  • delivery of services or content
  • private communications between two individuals

Any other type of sending must use the "commercial"strategy.
