Using the HTTP GET/POST API is very easy.
Call this URL https://api.suresms.com/Script/SendSMS.aspx with the following parameters:
Login, password, from, to and text.
|Login||Your SureSMS account login||Mandatory|
|Password||Your SureSMS account password||Mandatory|
|Text||The message text. Remember to URL encode this field. (If you face problems with special chars in the text, try to change the endpoint to GlobalSendSMS_UFT7.aspx).||Mandatory|
|To||The recipient of the message. (remember countrycode)
If you want to send the same message to two different numbers, it is possible. Seperate the numbers with ; (still remember contrycode). Use the endpoint ..com/script/v2/sendsms.aspx
|From||You are able to set a sender id here. Max 11 chars. Setting special chars as sender, will make the SMS turn to 8bit encoding and hence it can only be 71 chars before being split into two messages. You need the SenderID approved otherwise you will get a 401.||Optional|
|RequiredDeliveryDateTime||UTC datetime for a scheduled delivery.||Optional|
|Flash||Set to 1, if you want the message to be delivered as a Flash message.||Optional|
|Emailaddress||The emailaddress an answer to the SMS should be sent to. This requires a two-way solution.||Optional|

|richResponse||Set this parameter to 1 if you want to have a response with the price and number of segments in the response||Optional|
Note: The parameters are NOT case senstive.

In case you are representing a danish company and you are not able to provide a country code with the phonenumber, it is possible to choose a specific danish endpoint.
