An SMS API is an easy and reliable way to send messages to a large group of people instantly. Using a SMS API, you can send messages programmatically, that is, trigger messages with code.
With a communication channel like SMS, where the open rate is 98% and the vast majority of messages are read within a short period of time, there is huge potential for using SMS marketing as part of your sales strategy!

With REST API you can send messages and get delivery reports of sent SMS messages, track the delivery of sent messages, schedule SMS messages for sending at a later time and retrieve and review message history.

HTTP requests to the API are protected by HTTP Basic authentication.

In short, you will use your account authentication keys for HTTP Basic authentication. You can find your Auth Token in your account dashboard under the Profiles tab.
