  • Pay only for the SMS messages you send, without any additional charges.

With our SMS API, you can efficiently reach your users through text messages, leveraging the benefits of global coverage, reliability, and cost-effectiveness.

Available HTTP methods

Our API relies on HTTP verbs to determine the desired action for an object: reading (GET), deleting (DELETE), or creating (POST). In cases where your web application lacks support for POST or DELETE operations, we offer a solution. You can specify the desired method by including the query parameter _method.

Number format

Numbers are a key concept to understand when working with the API. The following points should be considered before developing your Application.

All phone numbers in the APIs use E.164 format. This means that numbers:

  • Omit both a leading + and the international access code such as 00.
  • Contain no special characters, such as a space, () or -

For example, a US number would have the format 14155550101. A UK number would have the format 447700900123.

Sender ID

Every text message sent through our API is associated with a sender ID. When utilizing the API to send a text message, you have the option to use any of the approved sender IDs associated with your account.

If you haven’t created a sender ID yet, don’t worry! You can easily create one within our application. Once your Sender ID is approved, you can immediately begin sending messages using it.

Message Templates

Message Templates are message formats for common reusable messages a business may want to send. Businesses must use Message Templates for sending notifications to customers.
