SMS Alphanumeric Sender Support

In this page you'll learn about our current support capabilities for custom SMS sender IDs, or alphanumeric sender ID worldwide.

Countries that require you to register the desired alphanumeric sender ID prior to sending messages from this ID are marked as Pre-Registration Required. To qualify for pre-registration, all SMS sent to that country from your account must be transactional. Some examples of transactional SMS include auth codes, one-time passwords (OTP), and account alerts.
