Frequently asked questions

Why should I register for a Sender ID?

While it’s not mandatory, Plivo recommends registering a sender ID. Messages sent without a registered sender ID are sent with a generic identifier such as “SMS” or “INFO.”

How can I perform required DLT registration?

DLT stands for distributed ledger technology. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) requires any entity who wants to send SMS to register in order to curb unsolicited commercial communication (UCC). Required information includes organizational details, message headers and templates, and required consent information.

Read our guide How to Complete DLT Registration for Sending Text Messages in India for information about the process.

Can I rent a local Indian number?

Yes, by visiting our Buy Numbers page. See pricing information.

How can I get local pricing when sending messages to India?

Go through the DLT registration process and register a sender ID. Customers that fail to register and use generic sender IDs are charged international pricing for messages sent.
