We now have our third account manager with Messente, and all of them were simply awesome. Messente is totally different to our previous provider where the responses and feedback loops were much longer. It took three hours just to write something back like 'your request was received'.
A bulk SMS platform is a software service that your application with the telecommunication networks. It’s a way to send SMS messages to any network, anywhere, with backup solutions, by only integrating to a single service.
There are several reasons why it’s better to use an intermediary for this kind of messaging, instead of trying to work directly with networks and operators. Mobile operators use specialized technical solutions and connecting your application to them can be rather complicated.
Bulk SMS providers like Messente make services that are about as simple as creating a website or making a simple HTTP request. These kinds of services are designed to make life easier and manage the technical side of messaging for you, so you can focus on the content of the message instead.
Unless you specifically need a direct connection with operators, then using bulk SMS providers is both faster and cheaper.
Every time you want to send a mass message, your service will make a request via the API. After that, Messente takes over. Our platform will translate the message into a protocol that mobile networks can understand, and send the message to the correct operator.
The network operator will respond back with updates about message delivery status or if there has been a problem. We’ll then translate the status update into a simple application-readable structure and send it back to your application.
If you are using popular software applications like Wordpress or Pipedrive, there might be pre-built plugins that you can use to speed up your integration. If you have questions about it, our support team will be happy to give you answers.
How can I get access to Messente’s bulk SMS platform?
To use Messente’s SMS API, all you need to do is create an account (it takes less than a minute). Then you’ll have access to the API keys that you can use to integrate the API. You’ll get some free credits to test it out and see if you like the tool. If you do, you can add more credits to your account.
We know your team is busy. That’s why we made integration really easy. It’s as simple as sending an automatic “Welcome!” email to your customers from your application. Some development is likely needed, but it should be something that a junior developer can put together in a day.
A developer’s view of API’s technical documentation gives you a better understanding if it’s easy-to-use and has the features you require. You can check out our documentation below, if you’re curious.
With Messente, you can start sending messages for as little as €0.01/message. We offer custom pricing for volumes higher than 10,000 messages per month, though. Click the link below to calculate your pricing, and start sending messages for free.

There are legal restrictions and regulations for bulk SMS messaging, but the rules vary by country. In some countries (like India) local representation is required to send SMS messages. In others, your use of sender IDs can be limited. You also have to consider accessibility and consent.
