SMS API | Send & Receive SMS | Overview

SMS Two-way allows you to send and receive SMS worldwide via our API. In comparison to our SMS One-way service, you will be also able to receive SMS on the phone number(s) you've designated during the setup.

1. Setup SMS Two-way (Send & Receive SMS)

Login to your tyntec first and navigate to the SMS section. Click on ‘SMS’ in the main navigation. Click ‘Add a new account’ in the top left. You will be able to select a service; select ‘SMS two-way’ to set up an SMS two-way account. Once you’ve filled out the form to request access for your account, just sit tight. We’ll get to work right away and reach out to you by email or phone within the next 24 hours to finalize your SMS two-way account setup.

Note: Setting up an SMS account that can send and receive
SMS requires a little more processing time on our end
because we need to assign a number to your account.

To set up SMS 2-way, you will need to know:

  • API / Protocol - (SMPP; SMPP over SSL or RESTful API)
  • Source IP Address #1
  • Countries you will be sending SMS

Once you’ve filled out the form to request access for your account, just sit tight. We’ll get to work right away and reach out to you by email or phone within the next 24 hours to finalize your SMS two-way account setup.

    Our Customer Success Team will ask you for more details about your use case and help you set up your account. You will be able to choose from different options. Feel free to BYON (bring your own number), which can be your landline or a toll-free number, international or national, and using both short codes or alphanumeric characters.
