Pricing for SMS Credits (the app is free!)



While the SMS Express app is free to our lovely clients, sending SMS is unfortunately not free and you will need to purchase credits. At this stage, you cannot purchase SMS credits directly from the app (available soon), but you can login to your account via  SMS Express Control Panel and purchase via Paypal or credit card from the Online Payments section or contact us for other options.

If you do not have an existing account with us, no problem. Just pop in to the SMS Express Control Panel and set one up in 5 minutes, or call us on 1300 668 287 and we'll do it for you, and give you 10 free credits to test.

We offer SMS credits on a PAY AS YOU GO basis, with a discount for bulk purchases. Please note there is NO MINIMUM ORDER...just buy what you need, when you need it.
