hotel booking numbers, and other relevant data is by integrating our SMS API with your booking software.
Textmagic is a tool for sending messages. The logic behind that message is completely up to you.
With coding knowledge, it is possible to automatically send custom information.
We will accept requests for messages with whatever content you choose to forward.
Here’s how you can quickly set-up the SMS API:
Step #1: Obtain your SMS API credentials.
The login credentials are different from the API credentials.
As noted, Textmagic has two APIs, and your V1 key will not be compatible with the REST API.
To integrate the rest API please create a new key for the V2 endpoint.
