SMS Texting API Gateway for Developers – free, easy and quick set-up

The AnyText Programmers’ API is a simple, reliable program which automates the sending of SMS messages directly from your website or other business application.

As an example, your web page could simply have a button which customers click to automatically receive updates from your company. Or, if you are offering a product or service, customers would click on the link to automatically place an order/booking etc or to have details sent to their phone. Users of the service can opt to regularly receive automatic text messages with your company’s latest news as well as relevant notifications, reminders, invitations to events and much more.

AnyText can also provide you with a Keyword and Inbound number so that customers can opt to receive information from you by SMS. So, a Restaurant might include in its adverts and website “Text Offers to 80818 to receive special deals and promotions”, and so on for any business. The message you send might include a link to a website for product lookups.

The SMS API Gateway is easy to use, is reliable and robust and the basic service is FREE - it costs you nothing other than the messages you send - and of course there is full support.

What next? Just contact us for your username and password to be set-up and we email you the URL of the appropriate API and you get going. Easy!
