How it works (SMS)?
SMS Register use Fortumo SMS gateway for processing of messages and collecting revenues. Only thing you need is free Fortumo account, and (also free) Fortumo Premium SMS service created.
IMPORTANT: Since recently, people from Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Albania and Romania can’t create Premium SMS API service on Fortumo, so that makes this plugin useless for you. However, you can try to create new account using proxy or different IP (that is not from one of the listed countries).
IMPORTANT:If you want to offer services to users in Croatia (with this plugin), it is possible that your service won’t be approved in that country (because, since recently, Croatian operators banned all content related SMS services through Fortumo).
