When you sign up, you'll have to verify your email address. This allows sendchamp to verify your identity.

After you've verified your email address, you'll be asked a question in order to get you started in a way that's relevant to you.

After you finish setting up your account, you'll have access to your dashboard where you can access your API Key and perform dashboard communication functions.

Setting up your Python Application

First, you’ll need to create a file voice.py to save your code.


import requests

url = "https://api.sendchamp.com/api/v1/voice/send"

payload="{\n \"customer_mobile_number\": \"2348119974190\",\n    
\"message\": \"Hello from Olumide\",\n    
\"type\": \"outgoing\"\n}"
headers = {
  'Content-Type': 'application/json',
  'Accept': 'application/json',
  'Authorization': 'Bearer SECRET_KEY'
}

response = requests.request("POST", url, headers=headers, data=payload)

print(response.text)

Replace URL with either a test or live BASE URL depending on what you intend to do.

Replace Authorization under HEADER with your test or live Access key depending on what you intend to do.

Parameters

  • Set the value of (customer_phone_number) to any number (or numbers) you want to receive the message.
  • Set the value of the type to incoming for incoming messages and set type to outgoing for outgoing messages.
  • Set (message)to text message you want to send as a voice message.

Sending your voice message

Now you can execute the code and send your test your voice message.

Run the following script:

voice.py 

The code you used in the voice.py file sends a POST request to the sendchamp API endpoint to send your voice message.
