First, we need to enter our Twilio Account SID, our phone number with the country code and without any empty spaces. If you store your phone number without a country code appended, make sure you enter the country code here instead. You can also find the two Webhook URLs that you need to enter in your Twilio account.
Next we need to setup the action keywords we want to use. The transfer action keyword is mandatory while cancel and balance keywords are optional. Make sure the keyword you set must be a single word or number. It however can not contain any empty spaces!
Next, we need to set the meta key or the BuddyPress profile field name where your users phone numbers are stored and how you want users to identify the recipient of the transfer. You can select to identify users by their numeric ID, their username or email address.
Next we need to setup feature related settings such as the point type we want to transfer using SMS messages and the reference we want to log transfers under.
If you have set the Transfer add-on to enforce a limit you can select if you want this limit to also be enforced with SMS transfers. You can also select if users can attach messages to transfers and if users can cancel a transfer, the maximum time they have to do so.
Next we need to set the log entry templates the plugin should use when logging each transfer. Remember that these fields can not be left empty or the transfer will be declined. You can however leave the cancellation templates empty if you do not allow transfers to be cancelled.
Next we need to setup our SMS replies. These replies are sent to inform the user of how the transfer went. This includes possible errors like the recipient is not found or if the user tries to transfer more points then they have, or success messages.
Remember that SMS replies are not free and will be charged. If your account runs out of funds, your users will not receive any SMS messages, not even a warning that you have run out of funds to send a reply.
New in version 2.0, you can also inform the transfer recipient of incoming transfers. These replies are sent to the recipient from your Twilio number and are not free. If your account runs out of funds, these notifications will not be sent! Leave the fields empty if you prefer not to send notifications.
