This route offers lower rates per SMS message, resulting in significant savings for those looking to send mass messaging campaigns or send regular messages to recipients in Ecuador.
To use this new local route, it is necessary to comply with some specific requirements that we will explain below that have to do with the registration and content of the messages.
The local SMS route to Ecuador has several important features:
These features ensure that the local SMS delivery route to Ecuador is used efficiently and complies with local regulations and requirements. By following these guidelines, companies can send reliable and effective text messages via this route.
For sending with this local route it is necessary to pre-register the content templates.
And therefore it is necessary to request the local sending route, communicate the necessary data and wait for its activation in your LabsMobile account. These are the required data:
LabsMobile, as SMS delivery service provider, will manage the approval of the type of traffic and content template with each of the telephone operators in Ecuador.
It is essential that the company or brand sending the SMS be identified unequivocally and without abbreviations. This ensures that the recipients recognize the origin of the message and a reliable communication is established.
In addition, it is necessary to report on the content template of each message sent so that they are classified and approved independently. This involves providing accurate details about the message content for evaluation and approval by the telephony operators.
The approval process generally takes 24 to 48 hours. However, it is recommended to request approval well in advance in case of rejection situations, misclassification of traffic type or other issues. This allows additional time to resolve any issues and ensure that messages are approved in time for delivery.
Once approval is obtained, you can benefit from a local SMS delivery route with maximum reliability and at a lower cost.
In the case of the content templates used in the local route for sending SMS to Ecuador, it is possible to include variables in the texts. Variables are elements of the message that can have a different value in each sending, which allows customization and adaptation of the content to each recipient. Some examples of common variables are codes, amounts, dates and/or times, names and URLs.
When using URLs with variables, it is necessary to clearly specify which part of the URL is fixed, such as the domain or URL structure, and which part is variable, such as a unique identifier, a code, or any other value that changes with each message. This ensures that the URL is constructed correctly on each delivery and that recipients access the corresponding web page or resource.
Once the information of a use or template has been sent the regulatory entity will classify it with a traffic type. Traffic types can be:
Depending on the type of traffic, certain sending schedules are established, and in the case of commercial or marketing messages, additional validation is required.
