15 SMS Templates for Curbside Pickup

Curbside pickup setup

Curbside pickup has become a staple of most retailers. It’s an efficient and safe way for customers to shop while receiving their goods faster than they would if they selected the delivery option. And with help from business SMS, it’s easy for businesses to set up, coordinate, and streamline the entire process from order confirmation to product pickup. 

Templates are key to successfully using SMS to manage curbside pickups. Your team can use templates to quickly send frequently-used messages. Simply create a template, leaving space for customers’ custom fields, like names and order numbers. Then, you can use those templates to send information during every stage of the curbside pickup process. You can even integrate your business SMS platform with your point of sale (PoS) system, so the platform automatically sends texts when your PoS system updates order statuses. 

We’ve rounded up some examples of SMS templates for curbside pickup to help you create your own SMS templates. Each template uses a different tone and content in hopes that you recognize branding that’s similar to your own. Feel free to adjust and use those you like.
