Mambu supports full integration with both Twilio and Infobip as SMS providers. This allows you to create an account with either of them and start sending manual and automated SMS messages to your clients.
The rates of these 2 providers differ depending on which country you're in, so we advise checking with both of them before deciding.
Create a Twilio or Infobip Account
To create a Twilio account, all you need is to go to their website at http://www.twilio.com/ and click the Get Started button.
You can then follow the 3 steps below to set up your twilio account:
Enter your personal details
Add a phone number
Enable Permissions to send SMS messages to your country of choice (image below)
After setting up your account in Twilio, you need to enter the relevant information into Mambu as described below.
Similarly to Twilio, Infobip also allows you to register a phone number for sending and receiving SMS.
If you choose to work with Infobip, the first step will be to register at http://www.infobip.com/.
Enter your Credentials in Mambu
After registering with one of the SMS service providers, you will need to enter your credentials in Mambu before you're ready to start sending SMS.
To enter your SMS service provider credentials in Mambu, go to Administration > SMS > Settings > select Twilio or Infobip as your SMS gateway, enter your Account Username, Auth Token and Phone number > Save Changes.
The SMS service is now activated and you can start sending messages to your clients. We recommend running campaigns internally using a sandbox to test the functionality before going live.
* If you don't already have an account you will be prompted to create one when you first visit the site.
