Getting Started

Sending messages with Messente is a few steps away. Here's a short guide to get you started.

1. Setup your account

The first thing you have to do to start using Messente is create an account and get your API key (secure ID of an API user). We'll automatically add some credits to your account to test the API for free.

2. Verify yourself as a sender

To differentiate genuine users from spammers and people with bad intentions, we require you to verify yourself by registering your phone number. Once verified, you can use Messente’s interface to send the message to your number.

Verify yourself as sender

Registering a branded sender name is a manual process and might take up to 24 hours to activate it.
