SMS Gateway

Mr_TomMr_Tom Hosting ProviderOG

Hi all.

Does anyone have any recommendations for an SMS gateway? It'll be used for sending out order confirmations from an ecommerce site, which is UK based sending mainly to UK numbers.

I've looked at a couple, including Twilio, but wondered if anyone had any experience/recommendations.

Thanks in advance :)

  • +! for Twilio. They make it super simple and the pricing is very reasonable. I like them.

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.

  • Twilio is the one thing that comes to mind. Are there others?

  • +1 for Twilio, but AWS SNS SMS is pretty decent too - pricing is not bad for UK: https://aws.amazon.com/sns/sms-pricing/

    Didn't know about that one! That one might come in handy as they're currently using SES for order emails anyway.

  • Twilio for US
    Plivo or Nexmo (re-branded to Vonage SMS) for international.

    They're pretty solid - I used them for a little while to get notifications whenever there's an SSH login to my servers. Had no issues - plus the ability to set your own Alphanumeric sender ID without paying extra is great.
