Integrating your API

The TextAnywhere Gateway API provides developers with the ability to integrate a range of text-messaging capabilities onto existing applications and websites, and to build new applications that incorporate text-messaging functionality with a user-friendly SMS gateway API.

With the SMS Gateway API toolkit you can achieve the following:

  • Send SMS
  • Receive replies to your sent messages
  • Receive inbound text messages to your own short code or long number
  • Query the delivery status of each sent message
  • Set the 11-digit originator field to any alphanumeric string

You can find detailed, free information on sending messages and pick up code samples from our Developer Centre and as a TextAnywhere user, you have unlimited free access to our technical support team.

The Gateway API is based around a fully documented set of services that each support the automated sending and receiving of SMS text messages:

The web service is invoked through SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) or .NET Framework calls from within your application or website environment. SOAP is supported on virtually every application development, website development and operating system environments, including:

  • .Net
  • ASP
  • Java
  • Cold Fusion
  • Visual Basic
  • Delphi
  • PHP
  • C++
  • Fox Pro
  • Python

Use of the Gateway API, account set-up and technical support are all free of charge. You just pay for the messages that you send each month and every new TextAnywhere account is opened with 20 free credits to get you started.
