StoreHippo provides the standard StoreHippo SMS service to send automated SMS for the respective events. By default, all the SMS to users and admin are sent through StoreHippo's default SMS provider. The messages are sent in the name of DM-STORE which is the registered name of StoreHippo with the SMS provider. However, StoreHippo allows you to set up custom SMS gateways that you can use to send SMS.
