The directSMS Web 2 SMS platform allows you to personalise each outgoing SMS message by adding the first name, last name or other custom details stored for each of your contacts.

Pricing – Pay As You Go (pre-paid) vs Monthly Account?
Pre-paid billing is great if your usage goes up and down every month. The pre-paid credits never expire and you can buy as many or as few credits as you need.
If your usage is fairly regular, then a monthly plan is the way to go. The rates are cheaper than pre-paid, you will get more features thrown in for FREE and best of all, you will pay at the end of the month rather than up front!
