What is a sender type and how can I use it?
You, as a sender who initiates the communication, have different options how to present yourself to your customers, staff and others. In other words, when a recipient opens your message, he/she will immediately see who sent the message.
BulkGate has 4 types of sender, however
some of them might not be available in your country.
System Number is a phone number that you can‘t influence. Your recipient can receive a message from a long phone number, short code, or text number.
Short code is a short phone number that you can't influence. Your recipient will receive a message from a short number (e.g. 2576).
Text sender ID
Text sender ID allows you to use a unique text for example a company name that appears instead of a phone number (e.g. MyShop.com, Amazon.com). The maximum number of characters is 11.
Own Number Sender ID
Own Number Sender ID allows you to use your own phone number which is subsequently displayed in the delivered SMS. Recipient can text you or call you directly on this number.
- To use Own Number, you first need to verify your number in your user profile
