# Send Text

You can use this page to send a text message to all, or just some, of your bidders. See Choosing Bidders for more details on selecting which bidders to text.

On the Send Text page, you would write your message in the "Send Text" panel, select your Recipients (aka bidders), and then use the Send Text button under the Actions sidebar menu.

Text messages themselves are limited to 140 characters each although we will automatically split longer messages across multiple text messages as needed.


To prevent spam, telephone companies limit "normal" phone numbers from generating more than about one text per second.
If you have several hundred bidders, and you want to message all of them, it may take 4-5 minutes for everyone to receive the text.
