Send SMS From Your Own Number or Business Name

Customising the Sender ID

We offer you the option of customising the SenderID so you can send SMS "from" your own phone number or company name instead of one of our virtual numbers. Please read on for more details.

Send SMS From Your Own Number or Business Name

The SMS Express platform has 5 "virtual" mobile numbers (also called shared numbers) hard wired into the system. So when you send a text message, it will come "from" one of our 5 numbers (the SenderID). These shared numbers allow your recipients to REPLY to your SMS, and Replies come back into your Replies section in your SMS Express account on our platform (control panel).

In your SMS Express account, using our virtual numbers is the Repliable default setting.

But you can change the default Repliable setting by creating a custom SenderID, so any SMS you send from the platform will "come from" your mobile number or your company name.

However please note the following:

  • If you use a word SenderID (eg your biz name), you only have 11 characters.
  • If you use a word, you cannot get replies.
  • Some telcos may block SMS from a word. We offer no guarantees or refunds if you are blocked.
  • If you use your mobile number as the SenderID, replies will bypass the platform and come back to your phone.
  • Note that all SMS sent FROM the platform can be viewed in Sent/Queued where you can view live delivery reports.
  • You can create multiple SenderIDs and set one as the default. Plus you can change these on the fly.
