How it works!

1.) INSTALL ADMIN PANEL

You will receive Admin panel when you purchase SMS Gateway. Install it on your web hosting. It comes with installation script so it should be easy.

2.) INSTALL ANDROID APP

You need to download Android App from here. After installing it you can log in to it using your Admin panel URL and it’s credentials.

3.) READY TO SEND

Now when you send messages using API or excel file it will be first stored on your server with the ‘Pending’ status.

4.) READY TO PROCESS

After your server gets the messages it sends the notification to SMS Gateway app on your mobile. When the app gets the notification it queues the messages for sending and set their status as ‘Queued’.

5.) SENT AND DONE

After each message is sent they get the status ‘Sent’ if it was sent successfully otherwise it will get ‘Failed’ status. SMS Gateway also checks for delivery of messages. If you turned on delivery reports in the app and your mobile network is unable to deliver the message it will be marked as ‘Failed’ otherwise it will be marked as ‘Delivered’ status.

Server Requirements

  • Apache or Nginx
  • PHP 5.6 or above
  • MySQL

PHP Extensions

  • php_curl
  • php_zip
  • php_xml
  • php_mbstring
  • php_gd2 (if not compiled in)

It is recommended to use VPS Hosting for SMS Gateway but it should work perfectly fine on Shared Hosting too. If you decide to go with Shared Hosting make sure your host allows hosting of SMS Gateway application. Some hosts like HostGator and iPage don’t allow it so it is more likely that they will block the app.

Android Device Requirements

  • Android 5.0 or above.
  • Device with 3 GB or more RAM. It works on lower spec devices but you may experience degraded performance.
  • A device with Google Play Services. If your device has Google Play Store then it means it does have Google Play Services.

Note

There was a policy change from Google for all apps requiring SMS related permissions as you can see here. After March 9, 2019 this app won’t be available through Play Store. You will get all future updates notifications from CodeCanyon. You will need to install the APK file on your device to use the app. The app will function normally and its functionality won’t be affected from this move by Google.
