As LiteCart asks customers their (cell)phone numbers in checkout, that means it's easy to send for example status notifications and other text messages to customers. This addon uses BulkSMS.com's to it.
More specifically this addon uses BulkSMS' JSON REST API, which is currently in Beta phase. You can send directly from LiteCart's control panel new texts, and customers can reply to them. Your own cellphone number is not exposed, but the number that recipient sees is one that BulkSMS' uses. With this addon you can not only send texts, but also receive replies customers might have sent to you.
If you want to check if BulkSMS can deliver text messages to you, or to someone else's phone number, please use this tool: www.bulksms.com/test/
