Sending Test SMS Messages
Updated over a week ago

Before sending messages to live customers, you would want to test SMS routes.

For this purpose, the tester functionality is available to you.

In the tester, you can also generate HTTP queries that you can send directly from a browser.

To test SMS channels:

  1. Expand SMS in the main menu on the left, then click Tester.

  2. Fill in the necessary information and then click SEND MESSAGE.



SMS Streams

From the drop-down list, select a stream you want to test.

Sender ID

You can enter your registered brand or campaign name. For Direct product, you can set an alphanumeric sender ID (for some countries, it needs to be pre-approved).

Destination number

Enter the destination number in the international E.164 formatting.


You can enter up to 160 characters per message in GSM character set or fewer depending on the input language. If you need to send a longer message, the system will divide it into several shorter ones. The subscriber will receive it as one complete SMS.


This is the HTTP query that you can use. Click COPY to copy it and then send it yourself from the command line.


The rate per message in your chosen currency (EUR or USD) will load depending on the MCC (mobile country code) and MNC (mobile network code) of the subscriber.

You can view the data of all your outbound SMS messages in EDRs.
