  • How to order SMS bundles?

    Select your application in My apps, click the "configure" button next to the SMS API subscription. This allows you to order new SMS bundles at anytime and check the remaining SMS units and their expiring date.

  • What is the validity token authentication?
    The token is valid 3600 seconds (1h). After this period, you'll get an error and should request another token.
    You can find complete documentation on how to generate such token on this page 2-Legged OAuth2.0 proxy V3
  • What is the error "Not enough credit"?
    You can buy SMS bundles using your Orange SIM credit or with Orange Money, in countries where this payment option is available.

    If you get "Not enough credit" error when you try to buy a bundle, you need to recharge your Orange account.

    If you used Orange Money, please note that it might take up to one hour until the new purchased units are credited to your account. You can consult your account status at anytime in the "Configure" screen from your application.
