Sending messages through the Chekkit software has a lot of great uses. Such as confirming information on an event, answering questions your customers may have, giving an update to an order, and many more.

Due to Facebook's policy on sending messages, businesses only have 24 hours to respond to an inquiry from their customers. Which can make things difficult for businesses to respond to messages that come in on the weekend.

To solve this problem Facebook has 'Message Tags' that allow businesses to send messages to their customers outside the 24 hour window.

If you are sending a message outside the 24 hour window, you will be prompted to choose the appropriate tag to send to your customer. There are three different tags to choose from.

  • Confirmed Event Update
  • Post Purchase Update
  • Account Update

Confirmed Event Update: Send your customer reminders or updates for an event they have registered for (e.g., RSVP'ed, purchased tickets). This tag may be used for upcoming events and events in progress. Reminder of upcoming classes, appointments, or events that the user has scheduled. Confirmation of user's reservation or attendance to an accepted event or appointment. Notification of user's transportation or trip scheduled, such as arrival, cancellation, baggage delay, or other status changes

Post Purchase Update: This tag is used to notify your customer of an update on a recent purchase. Confirmation of transaction, such as invoices or receipts. Notifications of shipment status, such as product in-transit, shipped, delivered, or delayed. Changes related to an order that the user placed, such credit card has declined, backorder items, or other order updates that require user action.

Account Update: Use this tag to notify your customer of a non-recurring change to their application or account. A change in application status (e.g., credit card, job). Notification of suspicious activity, such as fraud alerts.

Facebook will not allow the use of these tags to send promotional content, included but not limited to deals, offers, coupons, and discounts.

Using these tags will allow you to communicate with your customers freely and uninterrupted.
