POST method API for sending SMS
“POST” method API for sending SMS via Curl is a new feature of the “Two Factor Authentication and SMS Notification” extension. So, now it supports all SMS providers having HTTP GET or POST method API. This extension can be used on an Opencart Website. This extension is created by “Purpletree Software LLP”. In this extension, we can send the SMS by Curl. So now we have added a new feature in this extension. We have added the POST API method functionality under the “SMS API URL” tab with the dropdown value. Dropdown value options are GET and POST. When we select the GET dropdown value than all SMS sent by GET Curl method.
When we select the POST dropdown value then all SMS sent by the “POST” method API. By default, this Two Factor Authentication and SMS Notification extension select GET dropdown value, when we will install this extension. For select the drop-down value, go to admin->Purpletree SMS->setting->SMS API URL->HTTP METHOD->GET/POST.

Before creating this feature, All SMS sent by GET Curl method. In GET method, all the data append on the URL, which is sent by a form. We have created the POST method for sending the information. POST method is more secure as compare to GET method. From GET method, we can send only 2048 character on URL. Get method to have a length restriction for sending the data. But In POST, there is no length restriction for sending the data. So we can select the POST method.
