How do I test SMS donations?

Patricia Buss -


SMS donations are not possible in a test mode and are thus always associated with real payments. The reason that SMS donations from your donation form, such as the LENA widget for example, are not possible in test mode is because the keywords do not work in this mode. If you would like to provide a test mode function, we can set this up for you; please email

We will always test that your service works before we give you the donating information. You can then test it yourself by sending an SMS with your keyword to your own short code (SID).

Example: SMS "GO RAISENOW 1" to 488

This would make a donation of CHF 1 to the 2nd level keyword GO RAISENOW.

Note: SMS donations must be between CHF 1 and CHF 100.
