» Reseller SMS credits

BulkSMS has designed the Reseller Solution to provide our clients with an opportunity to resell SMS credits to their customers for individual and business purposes.

» Transfer SMS credits to another BulkSMS account

The ability to transfer SMS credits from one BulkSMS account to another gives the sponsoring account holder control of credit purchases and is typically used in a reseller environment, but could also be used within an enterprise environment or where a company has an enterprise development relationship with another firm.When transferring SMS credits, you can have various accounts transferring credits to a single account, or you can have one account transferring credits out to various accounts. The account holder transferring the SMS credits does so on an ad-hoc basis, or as the ‘customer’ (the second account holder) requests.

It can be used to tell customers about a one day only special.

» Personalise your SMS messages

Personalising your messages allows you to send bulk SMS text messages with unique information for each contact in your database.

You can create a single personalised message to all of your contacts by selecting relevant customisable information. This means that you can add the recipients first name, surname, account number, meeting time, race number etc to the same message and the information relevant to that recipient will be inserted into the message.For example: At a sporting event, the race organisers may need to send relevant information to all participants, but they need to personalise it according to race type, category and start time.
