Types of SMS Messages
The gate makes it possible to send two types of messages: ECO and PRO.
ECO messages sent from a random nine-digit number.
PRO messages are sent with a text signature or sender name. This sender name cannot contain more than 11 non-special characters. To use PRO messages, you must announce the signature.
Using SMS messages requires an additional contract, which contains prices for messages of both types.
