How to Connect Twilio to Sakari

Question

Can I connect my existing Twilio account with Sakari? 

 

Answer

Yes. Connecting your Twilio account to Sakari allows you to utilize all of the Sakari integrations, while managing your messaging with Twilio.

You will pay Twilio directly for all sent and received messages, and pay Sakari a software fee based on the volume of messages sent. These are called the "Twilio Pass-Through Plans". Please contact Support for information on the Twilio Pass-Through Plans and the available options.
