PayByPhone offers an SMS-based notification feature to help you manage your time and ensure you know when your parking is up!
Optional SMS messages consist of the following:
- text reminders which are sent prior to the expiry of each parking session
- text confirmations which are sent each time you park

PayByPhone's SMS notifications provide several benefits to users who are looking to stay on top of their parking payments:
Convenience: SMS reminders provide timely reminders before your transaction ends. This is especially helpful for people who are multi-asking and on the go!
Avoid penalties: SMS reminders help you to avoid late fees (citations/PCN) that are incurred when parking sessions expire without payment.
Peace of mind: Reduce your stress and focus on the things that matter. Reminders allow you to reduce the time you are spending manually monitoring your parking time.
Delayed SMS Reminders:
Delayed delivery times or non-delivery can occur when your network is experiencing problems. If you are not receiving these reminders, verify that the SMS Reminder setting is enabled. Please contact your phone company and then our support team if you are not receiving the messages.
