4. Send A Test Message
The default Sender ID will be automatically populated in the ‘From (SenderID) field. This will only be for the Customers who are doing a fresh install of v1.64. In the ‘Registration and Setup’ step of the Converse settings, as soon as you select the plan, a default Sender ID corresponding to the destination country that you selected will be assigned to your account. The Sender ID will be automatically assigned to you from the pool (you cannot choose the Sender ID at this point for this step).
If you are a paid customer, you can change the default allotted number by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and choose a number of your choice from the “Sender ID & Assignment” section.
The validity of default Sender ID
- If you select ‘Grow your conversation trail plan’ you get 10 message credits, 1 phone number, and 2 licenses, with a validity of 7 days. So the Sender ID assigned to you will be valid for 7 days.
- If you subscribe to a paid plan, the associated Sender ID will remain active as long as the plan is active. If the plan is purchased with additional Sender ID(s) then the user can select Sender ID(s) from the ‘Add SenderID’ screen.
The allocation of default Sender ID
- If you select the destination country, say the U.S., then the Sender ID allocated to you is from the pool dedicated to the U.S. numbers from the application backend.
- If you select the destination country as ‘All’, then the Sender ID allocated will be from the pool associated with the same criteria for location i.e. available Sender ID(s) will be from the pool that is for destination countries from the application backend.
If the Sender ID does not populate in the field, please contact email@example.com for further help.
