I need to enable SMS on a certain website. I guess the client wants to send (and receive?) SMS from the website. I'm guessing that one way to enable this feature is to set up an SMS gateway? How does this work? How much does it cost? How difficult is it to set up SMS gateway?

(Or I'm totally misunderstanding this ...?)

Hi there,

I can help!

It is very simple for you to send SMS text messages from your website - you need to use an SMS gateway.

I work for Txtlocal and full details of our API can be found on our website.

It is very easy to do and I can help you get up and running in no time.

For example.. in php you just need to do the following:

Code:

<?php
set up variables
$info = "1";
$test = "0";
$address = "ourserveraddress";
$message = "Hello this is a test with an ampersand (&) and a 5 note";
$message = urlencode($message); encode special characters (e.g. ,& etc)
$from = "Jims Autos";
$uname = "youremailaddress";
$pword = "yourpassword";
$selectednums = "447740101097";

build url
$data = "uname=" . $uname . "&pword=" . $pword . "&message=" . $message . "&from=" . $from . "&selectednums=" . $selectednums . "&info=" . $info . "&test=" . $test;

send messages
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"xxxx");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,"xxxx"); secure connection
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); use this to suppress output
$result = curl_exec ($ch); This is the result from Txtlocal - store as required
curl_close ($ch);
?>



Simple eh? Smile

Inbound is also simple. We just push the handset number and message content to a page on your server.

It is free to use and setup - you simply pay for the messages that you send. We sell credits in bundles, and you will find our prices are very competative and our support is fanatical.

Please email me or call any time.
