Questions about using the site
May I address to each recipient by name when using mass mailing?
Easy as pie. Such type of mass distribution we call Personalized mailing.
Just press a appropriate button when typing a message. Special character will appear in the text and the recipient’s name will be inserted automatically.
Why do I add 1000 numbers to a group but get only 956 instead?
When you add numbers to a group the system removes the repeating numbers. Thus only one unique number is left (even if it has been enlisted for 23 times). It helps to avoid sending the same SMS to one subscriber multiple times.
How quickly do you send SMS?
Our service is capable of sending 30-100 SMS messages per second so your clients will get their notifications in a blink of an eye.
I send an SMS but the site says that there's two of them. Why so?
All mobile providers allow the same quantity of characters:
Qty – Latin (ASCII) – Cyrillic
1 – 160 – 70
2 – 306 – 134
3 – 459 – 201
4 – 612 – 268
Each SMS may contain up to160 Latin characters (precisely, ASCII font). You may send a text up to 612 Latin characters or up to 268 Cyrillic characters at a time.SMS messages consisting of several parts just stick together so the recipient sees one long message.
So the limit of each SMS is not divisible by 160 or 70 due to such “sticking” process. The price for each part is calculated as for a separate message. Pay attention that some old mobile phones can receive SMS consisting of no longer than 3 stuck parts.
The phones unable to receive any stuck SMS will soon cease to exist.
If there is any odd out character, the system would consider a message inconsistent with ASCII and thus calculate the tariff for each 70 characters, including spaces.
