OK, the first thing you're going to need if you want to send SMS is a list of numbers to send to you can add these to the system using our Uploader tool - just click the Upload button in the menu to open it up. At this point, there are two ways for you to upload your numbers (there are more advanced options, but we'll just cover the basics here).

Entering A List Of Numbers

In the bottom right of the upload page, you will see two boxes, to enter a list name and numbers. Simply enter a name for your list in the top, and then in the bottom box paste your list of numbers, one per line. Once you're ready, click the "Upload This List" button.

Your data will then be uploaded to the server for processing. You can see how your upload is doing by looking at the Action viewer (click the little brown book icon in the menu). Once your upload is complete, you can use it to perform a send.

Preparing An Upload File

For larger amounts of numbers, you might want to prepare an upload file. This file can be a text file (.txt or .csv), or an excel file (.xlsx).

In any of these files, your first line should be the word NUMBER (see the example file above) followed by a list of numbers, one number per line. Once you have your file, you simply drag and drop it into the dark grey upload zone on the upload page. If you have trouble with this, click the link to "Use Classic Uploader", which will allow you to search for the file on your computer.

Your data will then be uploaded to the server for processing. You can see how your upload is doing by looking at the Action viewer (click the little brown book icon in the menu). Once your upload is complete, you can use it to perform a send.
