For example, if the United Kindom number is 44, and the phone number is 7759398257, then you should enter +447759398257.
And if you already have an excel file, you can copy the phone number column and paste them into the box.

The upload file method supports setting variables in the messages.

① Download the Template to fill in the phone numbers.
