Do I need a sender name/alphanumeric code on the Telco networks in order to use Texter's Realm?
Texter's realm does not require sender names out of the box. You can sufficiently run your organization and send messages on Texter's Realm using Twitter-like handles e.g. @myCompanyName.
That said, Texter's Realm also allows you to buy sender names with the Telco operators in Kenya so that recipients can see messages on their phone originating from the name of your company, Just like those MPESA messages that appear in your phone with the bold MPESA letters. These may boost some confidence in your brand
How do my messages appear in my audience's phones?
In the case you do not have a sender name registered with us, we will send your messages while appending your username at the end. This will be something like @YourCompanyName. Messages sent will have Texter's Realm sender name "Textr" as shown in the below screenshot.
However, in the case you have a sender name registered with the Telco operators through us, messages will appear as originating from your sender name; just like MPESA messages
