Bases on Tencent's over a decade of experience and technology accumulation in short message service, Tencent Cloud Short Message Service (SMS) provides high-quality verification code, notification and marketing text message services designed to help customers quickly and easily reach their end users around the globe for seamless business expansion. In addition, International Short Message Service (ISMS) offered by SMS supports messages in multiple languages and formats with wide coverage of 200+ countries and regions.
With ISMS, you can send messages from China or abroad to mobile numbers registered in Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and other countries and regions overseas.
Through its collaboration with various direct connection channels around the world, ISMS can deliver more than 90% of messages in 10 seconds or less and provides first-class service quality and reliability. It supports various platforms with over 100 million users such as QQ and WeChat with a 99% delivery rate, enabling message delivery in just seconds.
Simple and straightforward ISMS access documentations allow you to set up access in as quickly as ten minutes and launch the service in under one hour. ISMS can be accessed through many different channels such as the Tencent Cloud Console, API and SDK.
Together with a great amount of dedicated carrier tunnels, the smart scheduling algorithm enables customers to easily cope with online traffic surges. Further, the performance of disaster recovery and backup features is guaranteed thanks to the multi-regional carrier deployment.
You are provided with timely delivery report after a message is sent. Multi-dimensional real-time monitoring and smart scheduling ensure the security and reliability of the message delivery service.
Various multi-dimensional reports can be generated for a specified time period such as number of messages sent, delivery success rate, failure percentage and details, as well as delivery report details. You can also view the logs of messages delivered to an individual mobile number for a specified time period. These comprehensive data reports provide statistical analyses that aid efficient business decision-making.
An SMS signature placed before the message content serves to identify the company or business sending the message. Company name, product name, website address, brand name, WeChat Official Account or Mini Program name and their corresponding abbreviations can be used in the signature.
The body of a message can contain a verification code, system notification, member marketing description or other variations. The template can be customized with parameters (variables) to create personalized messages. The templates for China Short Message Service (CSMS) and ISMS can be used interchangeably.
Once the body template and message signature are both approved, you can send messages through the console, Cloud SMS API or SDK.
Once a message is sent, you can check the delivery status (success or failure) and the actual number of fragment messages in the console (variable parameters present in the message body template may impact the final number of fragment messages).
Tencent Cloud ISMS features alarms for excessive message traffic on each calendar day. As soon as the number of messages sent by a user in one single day exceeds the preset volume, the system will trigger alarms that notify the predefined alarm recipients, helping to reduce or avoid losses caused by potential unauthorized usage.
You can view the total number of sent messages and delivery success rate for the current day, prior day, last seven days, last 30 days or a specified time period; logs of messages delivered to a specific mobile number for a specified time period; number of sent messages and delivery rate of messages using a specific template for a specified time period; and delivery failure details, delivery report details and related analyses for a specified date or time period.
ISMS can send text verification codes (digits or digits + letters) to mobile numbers for signup, login, password authentication, payment confirmation and identity verification for apps or websites. It supports various platforms with over 100 million users such as QQ and WeChat with 3+ billion CSMS and ISMS messages delivered on a monthly basis.
ISMS can be used for lifestyle service notifications such as mobile payment, online shopping, bank card payment, account login, suspicious login, order confirmation, consumption reminders, shipment tracking, traffic violations and travel updates. It supports large capacity and high concurrence for better security and reliability.
ISMS can be used to send operational or marketing messages on various topics such as user care, holiday greetings, new product launches, product sales, discount coupons, business promotions and event invitations, helping you precisely target users around the world.
Currently, Tencent Cloud SMS supports sending international text messages billed monthly in a postpaid manner. Prices vary for different countries and regions.
