What is priority SMS?

SMS that is sent at a much faster rate than a usual SMS. We treat these messages like OTP (one-time password) messages.


When should I use priority SMS?

 For business-critical operations like fixing appointments with clients, sending verification codes. Anything that cannot wait and requires immediate attention.


How fast will it get delivered?

SMS gateways we have tied up with priority pipes to give a very high priority for such messages and promise a delivery rate within a minute.


How can I send a priority SMS?

Currently, we are supporting priority SMS only via APIs. If you want to send a priority message, set the optional field "priority" as high. All such messages are treated as priority messages by us. Refer to SMS API.
