EZ Texting's Text-to-Landline (TTL) feature enables businesses to send and receive text messages using their existing business phone number.
How does it work? A customer sends a text to your 10-digit, text-enabled business number and that text appears in your inbox. You can then respond to that customer, add or edit their contact information, or compose a new text.
Please note that this feature can only be used for 1-to-1 messaging and not group messaging.
How To Sign up
Note: Self-service signup for TTL service is currently available only to domestic U.S. customers and is not available to those living in Puerto Rico or other U.S. territories.
Step 1: Sign in to your EZ Texting account and click on Sign Up Now in the green box on the homepage. Or, go to Keywords & Numbers on the left-hand menu and select the Textable Numbers tab and click Sign Up Now.
Step 2: Enter your phone number and click Get Started.
Step 3: EZ Texting will call with a four-digit verification code. Enter that code into the fields provided and click Next.
Step 4: Fill out the "Letter of Agency" form and electronically sign it to prove that you own this number. Scroll back to the top of the form and click Continue.
Step 5: Click Agree to continue.
Step 6: Enter your payment information, read the terms and conditions, and click Purchase to finish the sign-up process.
Step 7: You Did It! You should now see a confirmation page letting you know it can take up to 20 minutes for TTL to be enabled on your account. Once it's enabled you'll be able to receive, write, and respond to messages sent to your text-enabled landline number in your inbox on the left panel.
You can also take a moment here to follow the links we've provided to alert your social audiences that they can now text you at your business phone.
