Twilio


Overview

Connecting your Twilio account to Sakari allows you to use your Twilio numbers for sending SMS in Sakari and utilize all of the Sakari integrations.  There is no charge for adding Twilio numbers to Sakari via the Twilio integration.

Pass-Through Plans

If you use only Twilio numbers imported via the Twilio integration to send SMS in Sakari, you can use a Sakari Pass-Through Plan.

On a Sakari Pass-Through Plan, you pay Twilio directly for all sent and received messages and pay Sakari a software fee based on the volume of messages sent.

Select your Sakari Pass-Through Plan

  • In the left navigation select Settings > Plans & Billing
  • Select the Change Plan sheet
  • Select one of the Pass-Through plan options

If you have any questions about our pricing, or the best plan for your business please contact our sales team at sales@sakari.io

Don't hesitate to contact Support for information on the Twilio Pass-Through Plans and the available options.

Not seeing your numbers?

If your Twilio numbers are not visible in Sakari, please check two things:

  • Make sure your messaging service is deleted. Your messaging service needs to be deleted prior to configuring the integration.
  • Make sure your Twilio Routing region on the phone number matches the Routing region on the API credentials you have created.
