Get Started


HTTP is the most common API type and enables fast messaging with fast set up times. The HTTP response can also contain either a JSON object or an XML string, depending on the URL you chose to submit your request with and can indicate the success or failure of the message.



XML Easy

Easy to connect and upload

XML enables clients the ability to upload large volumes of numbers in real-time.

We have SMPP availability for clients that want to set up large volumes of messages. If you already use SMPP and you want to switch to us, it’s Easy. You can switch to us in minutes without the need to change your application. You only need to change your configuration to point to the txtNation SMPP server.


SMPP Bulk Advanced

High throughput, High volume messaging

SMPP Bulk refers to the method of sending your MT messages using our SMPP platform. Unlike HTTP, SMPP is heavy in platform resources, and by default, an account is HTTP. However, most of the SMS volume processed at txtNation is via SMPP and we would love to assist you to switch your traffic to us.

  • High volume messaging supported
  • Minimum volumes required
  • Multiple Connections possible
  • Instant Delivery Reports
