Getting Set Up with Textel + SalonBiz

Textel Sign Up Process Overview

When you sign up for the Textel for SalonBiz integration, Textel can text enable your existing landline phone number or we can rent you a line for your business that we can text enable.  It is preferred to use your existing landline number which is preferred. Line provisioning can take 5 to 14 business days depending on the 10DLC carrier registration process.  This process is a very important step to registering with Textel.  It is also very important that you display a privacy policy on your website which is a pre-requisite for 10DLC verification.  Check out our Privacy Policy page HERE which will provide more information and assistance.
