SMS API

How quickly are messages delivered?

We use direct, or 1-hop connections wherever possible. This means you get the best quality SMS delivery available on the market.

Generally, it takes a few seconds to receive a text message; an SMS message typically takes about 10 seconds to arrive on mobile phones. This can vary depending on the receiving country (up to 30 seconds) and whether the receiving mobile number is reachable and in good signal coverage.
As there are a lot of factors and variables that can affect delivery times, it’s hard to provide a precise number.
In the case that some of your messages are delivered with delays, please refer to this article here. If messages are not delivered at all, we recommend taking a look at this article here.
