How to Switch from Zipwhip to Pidj

If you decide Pidj is the right Zipwhip replacement for your company, all you need to do is pick a plan. As we mentioned before, our services are month-to-month with no contracts, strings, or red tape. 

To keep things simple, our core pricing is based on the number of SMS sent per month, plus the monthly price for any add-ons you decide to, well… add-on. 

Transfer Contacts from Zipwhip to Pidj

Frustratingly, there (currently) is no contact export feature on Zipwhip. This handy YouTube video shows you how to copy and paste your contacts from Zipwhip into a spreadsheet (it uses Google Sheets but it works the same for Excel or Pages) or you could try asking Zipwhip Support for your data. That one might be a Hail Mary, but if enough customers ask, they might build a better solution than the above video. 

Once you have your contacts, you can easily add them to your account on the Pidj platform using our advanced import engine. Not only can you quickly add contacts, but also audience segments and tags in the same step.  

Transfer Zipwhip Number to Pidj

The last step in switching from Zipwhip to Pidj is to transfer your number. If you’d like to keep using the same number for your SMS marketing campaigns (which we recommend), please contact our customer service team via text, call, or email. Any member of our team will be happy to help. 

Save the Date

Most importantly, don’t wait! Whether you choose Pidj as your Zipwhip alternative or go with another business texting service, the time to switch is now. The sooner you get started, the better because November 30, 2022, will be here before you know it.
