What is a Sender ID and how does it work?

Sender ID

A Sender ID is a unique name or standard mobile number that shows in the “from” field of your text messages on your phone.

So, instead of the message coming from a system generated long number, you can choose your company name, campaign name or even a standard mobile number. By using a Sender ID, your customers will immediately recognise who the SMS text message is from.

Take a look at what some of our clients are doing with their Sender ID’s.

Recipients can’t reply to text messages sent using a Sender ID making it ideal for sending SMS messages that don’t need a response. But remember, you will need to include clear instructions in the message on how recipients can opt-out. By doing this, you’ll be sticking to the industry codes of best practice with every send.
