ExpertSender lets you also send newsletters via the SMS/MMS channel.
Please note that access to this channel needs to be purchased and activated separately. If you can't see a SMS/MMS Messages icon in the left-hand navigation and you would like to engage in SMS marketing, contact your ExpertSender Account Manager to switch on the SMS channel.
To use the SMS channel, you also need to have access to an SMS gateway, which is not provided by ExpertSender directly. Therefore, consider using the services of one of the following external gateways:
Only after you register with an SMS gateway and have your credentials, you may proceed with the setup. To configure the SMS channel, follow these steps:
After a successful setup, the gateway configuration should be displayed in the settings of the business unit:
Please note that below your configuration you will find a section entitled Callback URL addresses. It contains URLs which need to be provided to your SMS gateway provider in order to enable it to inform ExpertSender about actions related to sending SMS (at the moment, the delivery receipt, but stay tuned for more functionalities!).
This step will look a bit different for each gateway. The crucial point is to log in to your gateway settings and find a section in the interface which lets you enter a delivery receipt callback URL. We offer detailed instructions on how to proceed with two popular gateways, SMSAPI and SMS.ru:
To configure the delivery receipt callback URL in SMSAPI, follow these steps:
To configure the delivery receipt callback URL in SMS.ru, follow these steps:
6. Click Save.
