There is one more route ( SendOTP route) which is for SendOTP. if you are looking for OTP services, we would suggest you opt for SendOTP because it has various advantages over the traditional transactional route:

  1. Voice backup for failed SMS OTP, on our cost.
  2. We generate the OTP on your behalf, we send and we verify. You just have to call the APIs.
  3. The backend algorithm makes sure that the OTP is processed from our end in less than half-a-second.

P.S. We have upgraded mobile verification with SendOTP 2.0- faster, better performance, enhanced security. To know about SendOTP 2.0 contact at [email protected]
