Release Notes for 25 November 2022

New changes to the GPS Cards API for the week ending 25 November 2022.

New SendSMS endpoint added

Endpoint: cards/{publicToken}/sendSMS
A new endpoint has been added that enables customers to send custom SMS to their clients. This is done by entering the message into the field and then using EventIDs to populate client data.

You can send an SMS to a client by making a POST request to the endpoint. For example:


The body can include up to three optional fields:

  • phoneNumber enables you to select a number to send the message to if there is no phone number associated with the publicToken specified in the endpoint
  • smsText enables you enter a message to be sent to the client, including Event IDs
  • amount enables you to enter an amount value if the amount event ID is used in the smsText field
"smsText": "CVV for your card ending with %cardLast4% is %CVV%"

You will receive a 200 response if the request is successful, confirming the message has been sent to the phone number specified in either the endpoint or the body.



For more information on the SendSMS endpoint, see Sending SMS.
