CreateSMSMessage

You can send an SMS message to your customer or contact's mobile phone using this method.

This also creates a new contact in the system, much like CreateCustomer. If the name and mobile phone do not match anyone in your Contact list, it will be added against your business.

RE: System

When a message is sent through the API, the sender will appear as "System" in the Messages page in the Everyware portal.

Sample CreateSMSMessage Code

{
  "FirstName": "John",
  "LastName": "Doe",
  "MobilePhone": "5551112222",
  "MessageText": "Hello this is a test.",
  "ExternalID": "12345"
}
