Delivery Receipts can be requested from the SMSC by setting the registered_delivery parameter in a SubmitSM PDU. The SMSC uses the bits 0,1 and 4 of the registered_delivery parameter as per the Short Message Peer to Peer Protocol (SMPP) 3.4 specification Specification to determine the types of delivery receipts that will be returned. The supported combinations for the parameter are listed as follows:


  • The esm_class is set to 4.
  • The message_id is set in the receipted_message_id parameter.
  • The status of the message is set in message_status. Refer to Sec 5.2.28 in the SMPP 3.4 specificationSpecification for the all the possible values. All statuses except ENROUTE are Final Delivery Notifications.
  • The short_message is formatted with additional information. Refer to Appendix B in the SMPP 3.4 specification Specification for more information on the format. Ignore the "ID" field in the short_message because it does not have enough characters to fit the message_id.
