TXTSTREAM ACCOUNTS

All TxTStream services except for Keywords, are available for one low monthly account charge.

The TxTStream accounts area allows you to review your financial transactions, past invoices and messages as well as setup your own EMail Direct accounts when using our EMail Direct service.

TxTStream supports sub accounts that you can maintain yourself. You can think of a sub account as a cost centre with its' own account number and password.

Sub accounts and sub account usage will be itemised on your invoice. They also provide a secure way for each sub account to use the Outlook add-in or Easy Message. Sub accounts can login to the TxTStream accounts area and view only their usage.

OUTLOOK & ADMINISTRATION

All our services can be used to streamline your office operations. Links to Easy Message, EMail Direct and Keywords can be found on the right or below.

Our secure Outlook add-in installs in a minute or two. You can try five evaluation messages without an account. Check out the Installation and Usage guide in the related links.

The Outlook add-in supports scheduled SMS and integrates with your contact lists. Mobile replies will come back to your email. Our Outlook add-in is available for download in our downloads section.

You can respond to the mobile replies received via email and we'll send them back to the mobile. As is the case with all our services, any messages that were not able to be delivered will be sent to you in a batched non-delivery report via email.

EASY MESSAGE

Easy Message is a web based SMS and email system. Upload contacts directly from spreadsheets or csv file or manually enter mobiles and email addresses.

Easy Message also includes our Emergency Broadcast system whereby a mobile initiated message can be broadcast to a selected contacts list in emergency situations.

We support either multiple profiles (people) per account, or you can setup sub accounts where each sub account is separated out on invoicing.

EMAIL DIRECT

Once your domain, or a specific email address is setup in our system, you can send an SMS to a mobile simply by sending an email. Replies will come back to you via email.

In the TxTStream My Account pages, you will be able to maintain your own permitted email addresses.

As with all our services, we will send you batched non-delivery reports too.

KEYWORDS

We provide mobile keywords. Using a mobile keyword, a mobile user can for example 'txt the word INFO to 999'. The mobile receives your specified reply immediately. The mobile message will be sent to you as an email. Reply to that, and it will go back to the mobile as an SMS.

We can setup your keyword so that either the mobile pays as per a normal premium short code or you pay and the service is free to your mobile clients.

There is a cost per keyword and message pricing varies depending on which short code type you use.

DEVELOPERS

For developers we offer the choice between .Net/Com+ components and two web API's.

Either way, integration is typically easy and quick.

Documentation is available in our downloads section as are the .Net and Com+ components.

If the components and API's don't suit your requirements, get in touch with us, we have a long history of being able to quickly deploy custom solutions.

Schools

As a Ministry of Education accredited provider, TxTStream can supply Early Notifications via your school management system.

Once you have a TxTStream account, you can also use our Outlook add-in, web based Easy Message or EMail Direct for no extra charge.

Keywords are particularly applicable to schools whereby a parent or caregiver can send a message directly to your absences officer. Keywords are charged separately. See our pricing section and Keywords section for details.

RESELLERS

If you are already a reseller and have a reseller/distributor code and wish to add a new account, use the related links.

Once you sign up a client to TxTStream, as a reseller, you will be able to share in the revenue generated by that client. TxTStream offers a 50% share in revenue after cost.

Ideally, you will already have clients of your own and can see the benefit of being able to offer a wider range of products and services.

Pricing

We believe in no-nonsense pricing. There are no contracts. You are free to deactivate your account at any time.

TxTStream does not use so called grey routes whereby the text is routed off-shore. While these can be much cheaper, they are also notoriously unreliable resulting in a very haphazard service that is certainly not up to the level of service we strive to deliver.

A TxTStream account has a monthly charge of $20. This gives you access to all of TxTStream's products and services with the exception of Keywords.

Keywords are charged at $19.95 per month.

SMS text costs vary depending on volume. The starting casual rate is .15c. Replies are free as are the batched non-delivery reports we will send you via email. These list any undelivered messages along with the reason.

Mobile originated messages are charged at .05c for standard Keywords. The replies to the mobile are free. However, if you are using a free-to-mobile-user Keyword, it gets expensive at .34c for the message and the reply.

Early Notifications (schools) emails are .05c.

Invoice/statements are sent shortly after midnight on the 1st of every month via email. When a new account is setup, any pro-rated first month's charges will appear on the first invoice.

Please talk to us about any special requirements or volume pricing.
