API-x tokens are free and can be used as frequently as needed. To get a token you will need to sign-up for an account. If you already have an account you can follow the steps below to generate a token

It delivers to phone numbers on DND, support different message types (Plain Text, Flash Text, Unicode SMS and Unicode Flash SMS) and returns the most comprehensive delivery status report.

Since SMSPORTALCREATOR (SPC v3 & v4) is the commonly used component for building Bulk SMS website, the documentation below aims at providing the needed instruction to make the set up process as a simple as possible.

When you make an unsuccessful call to the API-x, an error response is returned. This can be in any of the following formats.

When call to API-x is successful, the response returned is 1000 followed by a pair of vertical lines and a json data.

Any time you interact with API-x, you will get a response detailing the status of the HTTPS call.

All response are in the format below:

This page contain information on how to quickly integrate API-x into any of your application using the HTTPS API interface. API-x is a token based SMS API that can be used to send SMS (Plain text, Flash SMS, Unicode SMS and Flash Unicode SMS), get SMS balance and accept delivery report for messages sent.

API-x is based on REST standards, enabling you to use your browser for accessing URLs. Use any HTTP client in any programming language to interact with API-x.

API-x The SMS API that delivers to phone numbers on DND

The wait is now over! We are happy to announce the release of API-x! API-x is the most powerful SMS API released to date. And more interestingly, it intelligently handles phone numbers on DND efficiently and delivers SMS to them using the Corporate Route. In addition, API-x can also deliver Plain Flash SMS, Unicode SMS and Flash Unicode SMS.

It is no longer news that the Nigerian Communication Commission mandated the Telecom operators in Nigeria to implement the Do-Not-Disturb (DND). While this is a laudable approach to the menace of unsolicited SMS in Nigeria, it has also created a lot headache for Nigerians especially business owners, religious organizations, associations and NGOs. Not left out are individuals that need to invite their family members and friends to events such as wedding ceremony, birthday parties and other social functions.

It our pleasure to let you know that we have developed and fully integrate a lasting solution to this problem that has been plaguing Bulk SMS in Nigeria since June 2016.

When the DND service was introduced on July 1st 2016 by the NCC, many of us were excited and rightly so. It was high time something was done to the incessant unsolicited text messages we receive from network operators. 5 months down the line and now many wish they never subscribed for it, owing primarily to the frustrating constant cases of undelivered bulk SMS due to DND issues. It has been disastrous, to say the least.

 

Over the past months, we have been working hard to ensure our esteemed clients still get the best solutions from US with regard to the DND issue causing mass non delivery of bulk SMS. One of the things we’ve done is giving the public the process of opting out of the service. Also, there has been a provision to remove DND numbers from your recipients’ list before sending bulk messages.

 

Do you also know that you get REFUND of all the SMS units you are charged for DND numbers?
