Choose between Plivo, Twilio, and Nexmo – this means that you have choices between your gateway provider. Essentially you’ll pay market prices through a trusted SMS distribution system.
You're Saving $ Money $
One of the main reasons why we started SMBmessenger is to save you money. Instead of paying $.05 per SMS message, you’re paying $ .005 (10x savings)
Trust Sources for Better Deliverability
Because you’re using a trusted gateway as opposed to any old SMS service, the phone companies will trust the source of your messaging and improve deliverabilty.
Use Your Own Gateway & Save Money
Most of our competitors offer their own gateways (which are likely managed by a different gateway anyways), we could have done the same thing.... this means that either we would charge an inflated rate per SMS message or carry on those savings to you. So we decided to save you money instead!
We guide you to create a Twilio, Plivo, or Nexmo account, and then integrate that account with your SMBmessenger account. The result is that you get to use your own number, and pay up to 10 times less for U.S. message ($.005 instead of $.05 per message).
You also benefit from the improved deliverability that's gained with sending with those providers, and all of the other tools that they provide.
Pretty sweet, right?
