Sinch Receipe

  • Official Website: https://sinch.com
  • Icon Support: No
  • Message Format: Text
  • Message Limit: 160 Characters per message

Account Setup#

To use Sinch, you will need to acquire your Service Plan ID and API Token. Both of these are accessible via the Sinch Dashboard or through the API section.

You'll need to have a number defined as an Active Number (from your dashboard here). This will become your {FromPhoneNo} when identifying the details below.

Receipe#

Valid receipes are as follows:

  • sinch://{ServicePlanID}:{ApiToken}@{FromPhoneNo}/{PhoneNo}
  • sinch://{ServicePlanID}:{ApiToken}@{FromPhoneNo}/{PhoneNo1}/{PhoneNo2}/{PhoneNoN}

If no ToPhoneNo is specified, then the FromPhoneNo will be messaged instead; hence the following is a valid URL:

  • sinch://{ServicePlanID}:{ApiToken}@{FromPhoneNo}/

Short Codes are also supported but require at least 1 Target PhoneNo

  • sinch://{ServicePlanID}:{ApiToken}@{ShortCode}/{PhoneNo}
  • sinch://{ServicePlanID}:{ApiToken}@{ShortCode}/{PhoneNo1}/{PhoneNo2}/{PhoneNoN}
