In the "API keys" setting page, you will see the "SMPP Settings" section, from where you can find an Encoding drop-down menu box for you to select the default character-set encoding to be used:

Do not forget to 'save changes' once you have selected the character-set to be used as the default for your account.

 

Please note:

1. This is only applicable for SMPP. Nexmo REST API uses WEB standard UTF-8.

2. This setting only takes effect for SMSC default alphabet (DCS=0). Whenever the data_coding is not 0, it will be replaced with the coding schema specified in data_coding.
