Thank you for choosing us your Bulk SMS Service Provider in India

At times, it becomes very difficult in choosing a Bulk SMS service provider specially in country like India, which is a very price sensitive market.

Every day a you will find a new entrant and simultaneously, there will be some one to bid farewell.

To start with, we feel that cheap SMS should not always taken as prime bargain tool. Although its one of the major factor, but at the end of the day service, redundancy,uptime, throughput and support does matter.

Being in this industry for more that 6 years, we have seen lot of gradual awareness and understanding by our users about the Bulk SMS industry (A2P applications) in terms of its utilisation, importance of technical infrastructure etc. Now people are well conversant with words like SenderID, Concatenated SMS, Two way SMS, Long Code (Virtual number ) , Short Code, SMPP etc.

Over the period of time, we have understood the requirement of our clients (more that 30,000), and always upgraded our-self with the changing pace of technology. Our Two way communication (Long code and short code) is the live example of our innovation towards our clients requirement.

We have always encouraged Developer community to take advantage of SMS communication into their application. We have created a separate Developer section consisting of HTTP API document, Sample codes for Sending SMS from various programming domain e.g , PHP, Java etc.

Our Toll Free SMS tool is an unique plugin developed for Non-techies , who want to tasted the flavour of SMS technology. This tool can be easily integrated in to any HTML based websites to collect inquires from website visitor to mobile phones in real time.

Our unique SMPP Client Tool specially developed to meet the requirement of our Enterprise clients. SMPP Client is used to push large quantity of traffic in a very short span of time. User can easily connect to SMPP server using this SMPP Client. SMPP protocol has its own advantage when it comes with the comparison with http protocol.

Technical Information

Incoming SMS API for PHP

We receive lot of inquiries from our users asking about how to receive incoming SMS to their application. I think our developers are expecting it to be very complicated than it is. We have made our incoming sms api extremely simple and user friendly.
Actually all you are doing is setting up a web page to which we send the incoming data to through an HTTP GET. Whatever your web page displays, is sent back to the phone.
In order to give our developers an open hand, we have also given an option to setup their web page URL on which they want to receive their incoming data.  (Add/Edit keywords in control panel)
Here is a sample PHP script which you can put to your webpage.
$smssender = $_GET[“who”];
$incomingMessage = $_GET[“what”];
echo(“The sender is $smssender, the message is $incomingMessage .”);
// Here you can also echo a dynamic auto reply based on incoming message and sender.
It doesn’t get simpler than that! Create a page with this in it on your web site called smshandler.php.
Go into our control panel an put the full URL in the URL Post box.
When an incoming message to your keyword comes in, it will be sent to your URL as follows (with the real values) –
The variables we send to you on the query string are:

  • who – phone # of the incoming sms
  • what – the complete message

It really is that simple. In your script, you do whatever you need to do to create the return message, and simply echo it back to the browser.
If you call the script in your browser with the query string, you should see the message returned.
Make sure there is NO HTML at all in the response.
Thats it! Now don’t wait ..  just create an account for ShortCode or Long code and have a THREE days of FREE Trial on your favourite keyword .
