SMS Sender ID

SMS Sender ID: (also referred as to SMS Sender Name) is the information that is displayed to the recipient as the sender of the SMS when a message is received at a mobile device.

Alphanumeric Sender ID allows you to set your company name or brand as the Sender ID when sending one-way SMS messages.

In order to enable this feature properly, first review the list of supported countries.   

  • SMS Sender ID may be up to 11 characters

  • Accepted characters include both upper and lower case ASCII* letters, digits from 0 through 9, and space A-Z, a-z,  0-9.

  • They may not be only numbers.

Note:  If your country is not listed as a supported country or if the criteria above is not properly applied, Alerts will be disabled and will not be sent to your end customers.

If your country is supported, you can set this up in your Alerts within the  SMS Sender ID field.

*The most widely accepted code is called the American Standard Code for Information Interchange ( ASCII). The ASCII code associates an integer value for each symbol in the character set, such as letters, digits, punctuation marks, special characters, and control characters.
