Kokoa sms developer's guide
The kokoa SMS API allows you to schedule, send text messages from your existing systems. Integration with the
kokoa SMS API is really easy, as you can connect to our interfaces over SMPP or HTTP/S which allows you to send texts
directly from your website, app or other software. Our API uses a RESTful endpoint and our response payloads are
formatted as JSON.
To get started, you will need to sign up for a kokoa SMS account. Once completed, your authentication details will be
available straight away and you can then get started. We will also give you some free credits to make sure that
you are integrated correctly and happy with the connection. Plus, our tech team is on hand 24/7 to ensure
that everything goes smoothly.
The kokoa SMS API can be used for several different reasons. It is great for communicating with your customers and
other key stakeholders. Our API is great for sending marketing messages such as sales discounts, new product
launches or exclusive birthday offers etc.
Message content is transmitted using the standard gsm character set. If the message sent contains any character
outside the GSM alphabet, UTF-16 encoding will be applied. Do not copy and paste content from Microsoft Word or
other word processing applications. This would likely result in non-GSM characters being used and the message
sent as UTF-16. Some characters, such as certain apostrophes and hyphens may appear to be in the GSM character
set but actually contain subtle differences.
You willl want to keep track of whether your messages have been delivered or not so that you can monitor campaigns,
keep records up to date and of course, track your spend.
Please note that due to very large file sizes, delivery reports are available for 3 months, after which they
are permanently deleted. If you need access to historical delivery data, please ensure you download reports
before they expire.
