Jomres Clickatell settings

This feature allows you to set up your SMS account details and receive a SMS notice on your mobile phone each time a booking is made on your site.


In order to use the Clickatell gateway you need a Clickatell account and at least one registered connection (API sub-product instance) between your application and our gateway. Each connection method is known as a sub-product. Here's how:

Step 1 - register for a Clickatell account

If you do not already have a Clickatell account, you need to register for one as per below. Otherwise proceed to Step 2.

Go to, and choose the appropriate API subproduct (connection method) you wish to use ( Clickatell Central (API) )
Click on the registration hyperlink.
Fill out the registration form.

After successfully submitting the form you will automatically be logged into your new account and taken to a page where you can add your chosen API connection.

Step 2 - add a registered API connection (sub-product)

If you are not already logged into your account, then you must do so at

Select "Manage my Products" from the top menu.
Select the API connection type you wish to use (HTTP API) from the drop down menu ('Add Connection').
Complete the form. Make sure that you enter the locked IP(the IP of this server), set Callback to HTTP POST. You'll need to set the IP callback to /index2.php?option=com_jomres&task=sms_clickatell_callback and a userid and password.

If you register more than one API connection, the description name you enter for each must be unique - you cannot have multiple APIs with the same name.
After successfully submitting the form, your authentication details will be displayed, including each connection's unique API ID (api_id). These authentication details are required when connecting to the Clickatell gateway to send a message.

Step 3 - populate the fields in the Jomres Clickatell config

Use your userid, password and api_id to populate the fields in the Clickatell configuration screen and set the gateway to 'active'.

Final notes

Obviously, you cannot use/test this gateway from localhost, you'll need to do that on a 'live' server. You (or the owner of the Clickatell account) will be charged for the messages sent each time a booking is made.
