Getting Started With Hellio Messaging

⏱ Less than 10 min read ~ We promise 😊


This Hellio Messaging Developer Tutorial will teach you the basics of getting started with Hellio Messaging’s Dashboard and APIs.

Sign up for free

First things first, let's head over to helliomessaging, and sign up for a free test account - no credit card is required to sign up and start testing. Begin by completing all the required fields, check your inbox for the confirmation email and tadaaa! 🎉 You now have an active Hellio Messaging account.

Claim free test credits & API Key

First, we need to verify you're human by clicking on the verification email sent to your email during your registration and as a reward, you'll receive 10 free test credits that you can use to test Hellio Messaging’s APIs.

Pro-Tip: You can only use test credits to send messages to your own verified number. You can skip this step and go straight to top-up your balance and/or purchasing a virtual mobile number. If you run out of test credits but aren't quite done testing, just let us know at support@helliomessaging.com; we'd love to help.

Get your API Key

To enable any Hellio Messaging SDK, you’ll need to provide an API access key. So let's create your live API access key. First, go to the Hellio Messaging Dashboard; if you have already created an API key it will be shown on your account settings on under the API Keys & Webhooks tab. Here, you can generate new API keys and manage your existing ones. If you’re having any issues creating your API key, please reach out to support@helliomessaging.com; we’re on standby to assist you promptly 24/7.

Top-up via your Dashboard

Just click the Buy Credit button in the top right-hand corner of your Dashboard. You choose your desired amount, proceed to checkout and select your payment method. Keep in mind that the minimum balance purchase amount is GHS 50.
