 Freguently Asked Questions

What is an SMS API?

What is an SMS API?In layman's terms, SMS API is a software service connecting your application with the telecommunication networks. It’s a way to send SMS messages to any network with backup solutions all over the world by only integrating to a single service.

There are various reasons why it is better to use an intermediary. Mobile operators use specialized technical solutions and connecting your application to them can be rather complicated.

SMS API providers, such as Messente, instead create their services with simplicity in mind. So, the functionality is accessible to anybody who can create a website or make a simple HTTP request. Unless you specifically need a direct connection with operators, then using SMS API providers is both faster and cheaper.

How does an SMS API work?

Every time you want to send an SMS, an automatic request is made to the API. After that, Messente will take over. The message gets translated into a protocol that mobile networks can understand and sent to the correct operator.

The network operator will respond back with updates about message delivery status or if there has been a problem. Messente will again translate the status update into a simple application-readable structure and send it back to your application.

Often if you are using popular software applications (e.g. Wordpress or Pipedrive) it’s possible that there may already be pre-built plugins that you can use. Contact our support and ask if anything exists that will speed up your integration process.

How can I get access to Messente’s SMS API?

To get acces to Messente’s SMS API you have to first create an account. It’ll take less than a minute to create one. Then you’ll have access to the API keys that you can use to integrate the API. Make sure you have also added all the contact details under your account.

How to integrate an SMS API?

Integrating SMS API is 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 can help you research the SMS API providers and eventually do the technical part of the integration. 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.
