What is it all about?
The FTP API is perfect for once-off, high volume message dispatches. Ideal for promotions and other messaging that is not particularly time-sensitive, you can send 50 000 messages at a time. Particularly useful for batch processing from legacy systems. All you do is upload to our FTP server, and your messages are sent instantly. Clickatell creates a history log file in your FTP folder with the status details of all messages.
• Supports text, Unicode, binary SMS and flash messaging. • Supports extended length messages. • Converts ringtones and logos into the correct format. • Use our VCard and VCal converters. • Delivery acknowledgement and Sender ID can be set up. • Gateway escalation: Should your message be delayed for a predefined length of time, it can be escalated to an alternative delivery gateway. Queuing lets you specify up to 3 prioritised queues which your messages can be sent out on. • Schedule a message for up to 7 days in advance. • Batch sending and two-way messaging.
