Postscript has been totally different from Attentive. The pay structure is far more beneficial. I always get a reply via live chat within 5 minutes. And the ROI is far greater. I thought we were making a lot with Attentive but I'd spend $2,300 a month and make $6,000 from text marketing. In my first month with Postscript, I've spent $500 and we've made $25,000.

— Gwen Jimmere, CEO & Founder Naturalicious

We came from using Attentive over to Postscript and have been blown away by how much easier it is to use PLUS how truly amazing their support is. The best customer experience I've ever had and that support goes a long way! Besides support, the platform is extremely easy to use for both beginners and experts. At this point, I'll be a Postscript fanboy for life!

— Jarod Steffes, Founder & CEO Muddy Bites

We switched from Attentive to Postscript and the difference is night and day. Attentive is extremely limited in its capability and lots of heavy lifting to get started. With Postscript, you can be up and running in minutes, the team is willing to go above and beyond for their customers, and you have many triggers that you can turn on and start making money with little to no effort.

Postscript is built exclusively for Shopify

With Postscript, you can use your Shopify customer list and data to segment and analyze lists.

You deserve control of your messaging

Attentive's "white glove" service means you need to email in to make changes, get reports, and even to access your subscriber list.

With Postscript, you're up and running in under 5 minutes, with access to an expert team and library of resources to help you fully manage your SMS.

No more mixed messages@2x

No more mixed messages (really)

When you install Postscript, you're given a free short code (phone number) that is unique to a small number of brands. This creates a two-way text channel with customers.

Attentive brands default to a shared short code where your messages are mixed with many other brands. You can buy your own — but it's $1,000/month.
