The API Reference provides in-depth details about our APIs. It also allows you to easily send a test SMS. To send a SMS you'll need your Account SID and Token, funds in your account, and a Ytel phone number.
Next, here are the steps to sending a SMS via the API Reference:
- Enter the Ytel phone number that you purchased in the “From” field. It should be entered in the E.164 format e.g. +14445556666.
- In the "To" field, enter the mobile number you will be sending the SMS to. It should also be entered in the E.164 format e.g. +14445556666.
- Add your message to the "Body" field.
- Click the “Try It” button. You will be prompted to enter in your username and password. Your Account SID is your username and your Token is your password.
