What is Sender ID profile and how can I use it?

Sender ID profile is a great tool for streamlining communication, saving time, and better overview. It enables you to set up sender type for each country separately in one profile. This function is especially useful when creating and sending international SMS campaigns, but of course can be used for standard campaigns for 1 country or for sending SMS notifications. If you create sender ID profile you’ll then see this profile when selecting sender type in SMS campaigns, Smart SMS campaigns and sending SMS notifications.

How does it work?

Let’s say that we create a sender ID profile for a fictional company ABC. This profil is called “ABC” and includes 4 countries with different sender types:

  • UK – text sender ID – “ABC Company”
  • France – text sender ID – “ABC”
  • Germany – own number
  • Ireland – system number

I can now create SMS campaign (can be applied for Smart SMS or SMS notification) that will be send simultaneously to the UK, France, Germany and Ireland. In the second step I’ll select the “ABC” profile in the sender type box. When sending the campaign, Gretor SMS automatically deliveres SMS messages in the particular country with assigned sender type as it was set up in the Sender ID profile. If there are recipients from other countries and I use this sender ID profiln, then the messages will be delivered with a default sender type – usually system number. On the other hand, if I send campaign or message to one country (UK) and use this profile, the message will be delivered with text sender ID “Spolecnost ABC”. Jestliže příjemci budou i z jiných zemích a já použiju tento profil odesílatele, zprávy se doručí s defaultním typem odesílatele – nejčastěji systémové číslo. Naopak, budu-li posílat zprávu do jedné země (České republiky) a použiju tento profil, zpráva se doručí s textovým odesílatelem “ABC Company”.
