Using our Developer Sandbox Service you are able to build and test your messaging application in full.

Test your integration to our gateway

This service allows you to test integration in a closed-loop – testing the code and reporting functions – as if you were sending SMS in production.

Please be advised that once your account is set for sandbox testing, the messages from your software/API will reach our system but will not leave SMSGlobal or reach the destination number.

When in Sandbox Mode, all SMS' that are sent regardless of method (API or MXT) will not be sent to the destination and, instead, will be reported as 'Test Success'.

Multi-part messages are not supported while in sandbox mode. Please ensure your messages are within the 160 character limit

The purpose of the sandbox is to assist customers in testing API integrations with their code, software, etc. without needing to worry about the consumption of credits and spamming test SMS.
Once you have completed the tests from your software/API, we can move your account from sandbox testing to normal routing, allowing you to send messages to your customers.

Simply reach out to us below to enable Sandbox Mode for your account.
