Cancel SMS Campaign

The Cancel Campaign feature on the platform enables you to stop and avoid any further sending for a campaign that is in the processing state and hence being processed.

You may need to stop an ongoing SMS Campaign due to many reasons:

For example, a marketing oversight you want to correct before relaunching your campaign, such as a spelling error, incorrect date, outdated information, and many more.

Using this feature, you can:

  • Reduce the impact of human error by preventing your entire campaign target from receiving the wrong message.
  • Only cancel the campaigns that are in the Processing state.


  • Ensure you have a sufficient balance left (prepaid user) or enough monthly usage available (postpaid user) to launch your SMS campaign.
  • You need to Launch the SMS Campaign. For more information, see the Launch an SMS Campaign page.



  • Please note that a portion of your target may receive the messages even when you decide to cancel an ongoing campaign: even after you cancel a campaign, messages that are already in the processing queue will be sent to the end-users; all other messages of the campaign still to be added to the processing queue, will not be sent.

To enable the Cancel Campaign functionality, perform the following steps:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. On the Campaigns page, click SMS.

The SMS Campaigns listing page appears.
