Before you get started, you need the following information:
- Your organization's name
- The Google account you want to use as your RCS Business Messaging Google account

- Job title
- Corporate email
Are you a carrier?
The registration process on this page is for signing up to an RBM Developer account. Proceed if you are looking to enable your developer team. However, be aware of the Organisation name you use when your developers sign up so that these agents can be identified as belonging to you.
If you are looking to get access to the RBM Administration Console then please head to this page and don't proceed further.

Accounts and launching agents
When you launch agents, it is important that carriers can identify your organisation and the correct contact points for invoicing you for reaching their subscribers. Best practice is to:
- encourage all members of your development team to have their own RCS Business Messaging developer accounts.
- create one RCS Business Messaging developer account specifically for launching agents which has the correct billing email address and organisation name that carriers will recognize.
Submit your information
To register with RCS Business Messaging, fill out the following form. You'll receive an email once Google registers you as a partner, which can take up to three days.
