  • How many SMS messages can I send at any one time?

    Technically, as many as you like, depending on your available credits, and up to a maximum of 10,000 numbers at one time. However, we advise to send in batches of 500, to ensure they do not get detected as spam.

  • Can I send a message as if from my own mobile number?

    Yes, you can use any name (up to 11 characters) or mobile number. Sending name and numbers are configured within the SMS portal, and can be added and removed as needed. If you use your own mobile number, any replies will be sent directly to the mobile number. Additional, separate numbers can be purchased if required.

  • Is there a maximum message length?

    Each SMS credit allows up to 160 characters. The maximum length of any message is 5 SMS credits (766 Characters). Anything longer than this will be truncated to 765 characters.

  • What is the Simple Reply Service (SRS) & how does it work?

    This lets to send out SMS messages and receive responses back. When using this feature, you’re automatically assigned a random mobile number, which is then permanently assigned to your account. Every 160 character message you send out using the SRS uses 1.5 credits, rather than the standard 1 credit. All responses are received back into your SMS portal, so they can be viewed and responded to again, if required.

  • How does GDPR affect SMS messaging?

    As we do not control customer data, it’s up to you to ensure that you adhere to the GDPR regulations or not. Our platform provides a facility to include a “reply to stop receiving messages” at the end of texts, to enable easy management of marketing lists.

  • What are the “per message” costs for each type of SMS I can send?

    Each SMS credit (costing 3p) allows you to send a standard SMS message of up to 160 characters. The exception is when you use the Simple Reply Service (SRS) which uses up 1.5 SMS credits per message.

  • Will you debit my account automatically, like a normal subscription?

    Yes. Invoices will be produced on the 1st of each month and issued to you during our billing cycle. You will have the option to setup a Direct Debit (DD) or pay the invoice manually. Failure to make payment will lead to loss of service and any unused SMS credits.

  • How do I buy extra SMS credits?

    You will get 100 free introductory SMS credits when you initially sign up. This should be enough for you to fully trial the platform. You can then buy extra SMS credits at any stage via our SMS Credits order form.

  • What does an SMS keyword cost?

    You’re provided a random one for free as part of your standard monthly subscription. Additional ones will cost £15.00 per month (exc VAT) and will require a 12-month contract.

  • Do I get charged if my message doesn’t get through for any reason?

    That depends! If the message is physically sent, then you will be charged for it, even if the recipient receives it or not. Messages that get flagged as spam may still be charged as well.

  • Do I have to pay the £19.99 monthly fee even if I don’t use the service that month?

    Yes, much like you have to pay a mobile phone contract, even if you don’t use it. The subscription fee allows access to the services and preferential wholesale SMS rates. Failure to make payment will result in loss of service.
