WhatsApp alerts are optional features that you can simply activate from Appointo's settings.

WhatsApp alert pricing is usage-based($0.1 per message) and will be independent of the respective paid plan subscription.

For example, if you have a 'Pro Plan'($12/month) subscription and you have activated Whatsapp alerts, then the total monthly charge would be $12 + Appointment WhatsApp charges.

If you have not enabled the above feature, it will work as before and you will be charged according to the plan. In this case, that will be $12/month.

How you can activate it?

CleanShot 2021-09-17 at 14.06.48@2x.png

  1. Click on 'General Settings'-> 'Text Settings'
  2. Click on 'Activate' and 'Save'
  3. You will be redirected to the Shopify apps' subscription page to give permission for usage charges. It will not double-charge your account and will update the existing subscription.
