Q. 10) If my  Sender ID does not match with my Company Name applied on DLT, then what should I do?


In such a case, kindly upload a document to prove the co-relation between Company Name and Header. (If Alphabet Inc. needs Sender ID as Google, they need to prove co-relation between Sender Id GOOGLE and Alphabet.) (If the Operator is not satisfied with co-relation proof, your Header may not be approved)

Possible co-relation docs could be (for the above example) - 

1. If your brand (Google) has a registered domain and website, take a screenshot of your website page showing the domain URL and your main company name (Alphabet Inc.) on the website page.

2. Invoice of the domain (Google) that has been raised to your main company name (Alphabet Inc.).

Q. 16) Can I select a header with any possible digits?

No, as of now, Operators are approving Headers other than 6 alphabets, but no Operator has the functionality to send SMS with Headers other than 6 alphabets.
So, request you to get any  6 alphabet Header (in correlation with your organization name) approved from Operator and use only that for sending SMS.


Q. 17) Got Entity/TM Id from one operator, do I have to register on others as well?
As of 29th July 2020, If the Header is approved from anyone DLT platform it can be used to send SMS, however, as precautionary measures, we recommend you to register on other DLT platforms as well for seamless service.
While registering again, make sure your register as an 'already enrolled' and provide your Entity or TM Id ( received from 1st registration)
