Profile Requirements

To deliver a message to a recipient over Africa's Talking SMS, Courier must be provided the recipient's SMS-compatible telephone number. This value should be included in the recipient profile as phone_number.

You can use a provider override to replace what we send to Africa's Talking SMS API. For example, you can add a registered short code or alphanumberic from you Africa's Talking SMS Application to your request:

  "recipient": "abc123",
  "profile": {
    "phone_number": "+27765559758",
  "override": {
    "africastalking-sms": {
      "body": {
        "from": "12345"

Everything inside of override.africastalking-sms will replace what we send to Africa's Talking SMS API. You can see all the available options by visiting Africa's Talking SMS docs.
