The Reach SMS API allows you to schedule, send and receive text messages from your existing systems.

Integration with the Reach SMS API is really easy, as you can connect to our interfaces over HTTP/S which allows you to send texts directly from your website, app or other software. Our API uses a RESTful endpoint and our request and response payloads are formatted as JSON, but we also provide GET as an alternative.

To get started, you’ll need to sign up for a free account. Once completed, your authentication details will be available straight away and you can then get started. We’ll also give you some free credits to make sure that you are integrated correctly and happy with the connection. Plus, our tech team is on hand 24/7 to ensure that everything goes smoothly.

BENEFITS OF USING THE REACH SMS API

SMS API for Developers

Using our API

The Reach API can be used for several different reasons. It’s great for communicating with your customers and other key stakeholders and it can pull data from mobile forms to automatically send messages.

Our API is great for sending marketing messages such as sales discounts, new product launches or exclusive birthday offers. You can also take advantage of automatic appointment reminders, delivery notifications or e-ticket delivery. Additionally, you can use it to communicate with staff or third-party contractors if required.

Powerful Branding

Powerful Branding

When you are sending messages, you have the option of either changing the sender ID, setting up an inbound long number or adding a short code.

A great way to showcase your brand is by changing the sender ID to your company name when you send a message (up to 11 characters). As your customers will be able to see who their new message has come from, this will lead to higher open rates. This will contribute to higher open rates as your customers will be able to see who their new message has come from, which is perfect when you are sending marketing content or appointment reminders. Additionally, you can change the ID to a long number or add a short code which allows your customers to reply. This is great if you need to have a two-way conversation with your customers and is great for customer service!
