Follow the below steps to configure V-connect as your SMS Service Provider (SSP).
As shown above:
Select V-connect from the List of Available SSPs. In doing so, you will be prompted by a configuration modal.
Please add a user-friendly name that enables you to identify the right SSP for a campaign while creating it. This comes in handy especially, when you have multiple accounts with the same SSP for sending different types of campaigns.
For example, if you have chosen to use V-connect for sending Promotional campaigns, then we recommend that you indicate the same by naming the configuration something like:
- V-connect Promo
- V-connect Mobile Promo Pipeline
Navigate to your V-connect dashboard to find and copy your account details. Paste them in the configuration modal.
(Applicable only if you are sending messages to users located in India via domestic messaging pipeline. International messaging routes remain unaffected.)
As per TRAI's latest SMS Marketing regulations for India, you must be registered on a DLT portal as a business entity. Once registered, a unique Principle Entity ID (PE ID) will be assigned to you.
W.e.f from Nov 19, 2020, it is mandatory for all SSPs to pass a PE ID in the payload of each SMS message being sent to Indian phone numbers. We have partnered with V-connect to make this a seamless process for you.
Add your PE ID during configuration - we will ensure that it is relayed to the SSP for each SMS sent to your users.
Please get in touch with your relationship manager at V-connect if these authentication headers aren't readily available in your dashboard.
Click Add SSP, and you're good to go!
Adding the WebEngage Webhook in V-connect will enable us to receive delivery status notifications for each user. This includes campaign performance indicators like the message delivered, failed, and queued.
Here's how you can go about it:
Step 7.1.: As shown below, you will find your V-connect integration under the section, Your SMS Service Provider List.
Step 7.2.: Click the overflow menu placed on the extreme right, click View Webhook URL, and copy the link.
Step 7.3.: Paste the WebEngage Webhook URL under the relevant field in your V-connect dashboard and click Save. Please connect with your V-connect Account Manager for further assistance.
You've now successfully integrated V-connect with your WebEngage dashboard.
You can test the integration by creating a test SMS campaign and sending it to a group of internal users (aka your teammates).
