GOCare is a mobile-messaging account alert platform proactively delivering account information (balance, due date, payment confirmation, outages, appointment reminders, and more).
We will send customers 3 – 5 messages per month to let them know (1) your bill is available to view; (2) your balance due amount; (3) a payment confirmation (when payment is posted); and if necessary (4) your payment is due (and/or past due); and (5) an account upgrade / downgrade notification. Occasionally, messages on irregular events (outages and appointment confirmations) may also be sent (if applicable). Customers may initiate the process by using any of the KEYWORDS shown on this page.
Broadstripe does not charge for GOCare. Customers’ mobile service provider may charge the mobile user to send / receive text messages depending on the terms of their mobile account. GOCare utilizes standard SMS text messages to deliver account info. If you are unsure, please check with your mobile provider for text messaging costs and plans. Please see our GOCare Terms and Conditions below for more information.
No. Customers must proactively Opt-In to utilize the GOCare service.
Customers may Opt-In by texting BROADSTRIPE to 90622 and following the prompts. You will need to provide the Last Name on the Account and Your six digit account number (001-XXXXXX), and the Last Four Digits of the Phone Number Associated with the Account.
No. GOCare recognizes upper and lower case letters as the same.
Unfortunately, customers must Opt-In to the GOCare system again if they get a new mobile phone number. The new number will not be associated with a customer account without a new Opt-In process. Please ensure you update your BROADSTRIPE account with your new mobile contact number (and deleting the old mobile number). If you forget to make this important update, future GOCare messages will not be delivered. Undelivered messages to your old number will cause that number to be deleted from future GOCare alerts.
To Opt-Out, simply text STOP to 90622 and follow the prompts.
