Legal Disclosure

Note that a legal disclosure with an opt-in checkbox is required when collecting a subscribers mobile phone number for marketing purposes. Please confirm with your legal team before utilizing this feature. Upon a successful submission, Button will store the date and time of consent.


Direct Subscriber Capture

Using ButtonJS, you can make a call using our subscribePhoneNumber method to opt-in a user to an SMS marketing subscription. Upon success, a legally required "Welcome" SMS message will be sent to the subscriber's phone number informing them of their newly created subscription. If a subscription already exists, the method will try and record the attempt to create the subscription, and if successful, another "Welcome" message will be sent.
