Has anyone had any experience using the Clickatel REST API for SMS Messaging?

I have recently implemented a 2-factor verification solution with SMS messages. It uses Chilkat with their REST API for Twilio and it was really straightforward and quick to make.

we have used a number of these services, Twilio, Nexmo, Clickatel, etc

sending an SMS is a really simple HTTP POST. No additional products needed

Add Auth header and then post json or xml data. ypur choice

for ex



POST /messages
Content-Type: application/json
Accept: application/json
Authorization: [Your Authorization Token]
{
"content": "your message",
"to": ["+1112223333", "1112223334"],
"from": "1234567890",
"binary": false,
"clientMessageId": "uuid",
"scheduledDeliveryTime": "2020-02-15T12:30:00+0200",
"userDataHeader": "0605040B8423F0",
"validityPeriod": 1,
"charset": "UTF-8"
}

Thanks all, I should have been more specific. I was having an issue with my implementation of clickable but I got it sorted

Chris, what was the issue you had? I seem to be able to get to the server but must have a missing element to my JSON. Or worse.
