If you installed Colligso TextIn app on 3rd party platform like Clover, Poynt, Shopify, Square, etc., you would see your customers imported and shown under Total Customers in the Dashboard. Colligso only imports customers who have opted-in for marketing.
You cannot send text messages to those customers using a Text campaign yet. SMS marketing using TextIn requires a written permission from your customers from their personal devices before you can reach them with any announcement, message or offers.

In order to get the opt-in from imported customers, Colligso provides you a pre-built campaign.
Once this campaign sends text messages to your imported customers, they may respond from their personal devices with their preference for following your business. Give it some time to collect all responses. Those who have responded positively are put in Reachable Customers segment as can be seen on the Dashboard.
