This package makes it easy to send notifications using AWS SNS with Laravel framework. Since Laravel already ships with SES email support, this package focuses on sending only SMS notifications for now. More advanced features like support for topics could be added in the future.



You can install the package via composer:

composer require laravel-notification-channels/aws-sns

Setting up the AWS SNS service

Add your AWS key ID, secret and default region to your config/services.php:


return [

    // ...

    'sns' => [
        'key' => env('AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'),
        'secret' => env('AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'),
        'region' => env('AWS_DEFAULT_REGION', 'us-east-1'),



Now you can use the channel in your via() method inside the notification:


use NotificationChannels\AwsSns\SnsChannel;
use NotificationChannels\AwsSns\SnsMessage;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

class AccountApproved extends Notification
    public function via($notifiable)
        return [SnsChannel::class];

    public function toSns($notifiable)
        // You can just return a plain string:
        return "Your {$notifiable->service} account was approved!";
        // OR explicitly return a SnsMessage object passing the message body:
        return new SnsMessage("Your {$notifiable->service} account was approved!");
        // OR return a SnsMessage passing the arguments via `create()` or `__construct()`:
        return SnsMessage::create([
            'body' => "Your {$notifiable->service} account was approved!",
            'transactional' => true,
            'sender' => 'MyBusiness',

        // OR create the object with or without arguments and then use the fluent API:
        return SnsMessage::create()
            ->body("Your {$notifiable->service} account was approved!")

In order to let your Notification know which phone are you sending to, the channel will look for the phone, phone_number or full_phone attribute of the Notifiable model. If you want to override this behaviour, add the routeNotificationForSns method to your Notifiable model.


use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;

class SomeModel {
    use Notifiable;

    public function routeNotificationForSns($notification)
        return '+1234567890';

Available SnsMessage methods

  • create([]): Accepts an array of key-values where the keys corresponds to the methods below and the values are passed as parameters;
  • body(''): Accepts a string value for the notification body. Messages with more than 140 characters will be split into multiple messages by SNS without breaking any words;
  • promotional(bool): Sets the delivery type as promotional (default). Optimizes the delivery for lower costs;
  • transactional(bool): Sets the delivery type as transactional. Optimizes the delivery to achieve the highest reliability (it also costs more);
  • sender(string): Up to 11 characters with no spaces, that is displayed as the sender on the receiving device. Support varies by country.

More information about the SMS Attributes can be found on the AWS SNS Docs. It's important to know that the attributes set on the message will override the default ones configured in your AWS account.
