What is a virtual SMS number?

A virtual SMS number, often referred to as a virtual phone number, empowers Australian businesses to send and receive text messages online. This enables seamless two-way communication via online SMS, where messages can be sent from a Notifyre-hosted Virtual SMS number and then replies received and available online or via SMS API. 

With Notifyre, organisations can utilise an SMS-enabled virtual phone number to enhance communication channels, as it allows for instant brand recognition which establishes trust and promotes engagement. 

Whether you're a start-up or an established enterprise, our virtual numbers for SMS enable you to reach a wide audience through our Australian messaging service. With our robust SMS API, you can use an SMS online number to send and receive messages from your existing systems, for streamlined and efficient business text messaging.

How do virtual SMS numbers work in Australia?

1. Create your Notifyre account

Once your account has been created our friendly team will contact you to verify your business account.

2. Order a Virtual SMS Number

Australian businesses can obtain an Australian virtual SMS number (also referred to as a dedicated virtual mobile number) through Notifyre's intuitive online platform. As part of Australian industry requirements, our team will require your business address and details to complete the order.

3. Send and Receive Messages

Once a virtual SMS number is activated, your business can receive text messages online via the Notifyre SMS platform, via email, or through API. Businesses can also send text messages online using this number as the SMS Sender ID and engage in two-way SMS communication through Notifyre's online SMS inbox or API.
Use a dedicated Virtual SMS number for your business and send messages from a consistent SMS Sender ID.

A Notifyre System Number is a shared sender number provided to all Notifyre users which allows users to send and receive fax & SMS through the Notifyre platform without a custom number setup.
Your virtual mobile number will be cancelled at the end of your current billing cycle. Until that date, you can still use your number to send and receive SMS. After that date, you will no longer be able to use your virtual mobile number to send and receive SMS. A Notifyre system number will be used instead.
Yes, but please be aware that once your mobile number is ported, you will be unable to make and receive phone calls as it will be turned into a virtual mobile number.
Character limits and message parts apply when sending an SMS through Notifyre. It is important to be aware of message characters as this can affect your total message cost. The maximum character limit for a single SMS text message is 160 characters or 1 message part. However, Notifyre does not restrict its users from sending an SMS text message that is longer than 160 characters (unless Character Limit is toggled ON under SMS Settings). If a longer message (multi-part message) is sent, each message has a maximum of 153 characters due to seven characters being needed to facilitate re-joining of the message on delivery. For longer messages sent, the SMS is split into two or more messages that may be reassembled on delivery, so they are a single message (or, on some handsets, may be delivered as a series of separate SMS). If you send an SMS text message that contains more than 160 characters or 1 Message Parts, every 153 characters or part thereof will be charged as an additional SMS message. For example, if a SMS text message is sent with 300 characters, the SMS will contain 2 Message Parts and therefore the second Message Part will be charged as an additional SMS text message.
An SMS Sender ID appears at the top of a text message conversation and is used to identify the sender to the recipient. The SMS sender ID can include numeric, alphanumeric, alphabetical and up to a maximum of 11 characters. Users can request a Sender ID in their Notifyre Dashboard.
Yes, with a virtual SMS number you will be able to receive SMS replies from customers.
