Clickatell SMS Gateway

Clickatell SMS Gateway settings are separate from usual SMS settings block because. Usual package of Clickatell services is not available for most companies because of too high cost. That is why we organize liter version of Clickatell services for sending SMS through this source.

In case you want to use Clickatell as communication type, check the “Clickatell SMS Gateway” box in the settings when you create new communication. Enter the API ID, name on behalf of which the alerts will be sent, and user credentials (user on behalf of which the alert will be sent).

Before that you have to:

  1. register on www.clickatell.com;

  2. register for the HTTP product. Go to the HTTP API page and click on the grey button near the top right hand corner of the page which reads 'Register for Free';

  3. fill in your registration details on the registration form and press "submit". The 3 bits of information that you will need to send an SMS will be your "username", your "password", and your API_ID. Your API_ID gets issued immediately upon confirmation of registration.

*Note: once you have registered and been activated you will automatically receive 10 FREE SMS credits which you can use for testing. *
