Overview

To ensure the delivery of your message, there are several factors you need to consider. The percentage of delivering an SMS can either increase or decrease due to grey routes, spam filters, and mobile number portability.

Planning your campaigns is the first step. Making any mistakes can significantly decrease delivery rates, however you can easily avoid the problem by reviewing and maintaining the correct formats while using our Communication Platform.

Sending messages with the correct formats

Sending SMS to a number with a wrong format, such as a wrong prefix or wrong number length, will cause the SMS to fail. Performing regular cleanup of your database is recommended to maintain a high delivery rate and lower unnecessary costs. Check below for a list of some countries with their number lengths. You can use this to remove or check numbers in your database that are too long or too short.
