Shared Shortcode


Shared Shortcode is utilized by multiple brands, which share the setup costs and fees. This makes it easily affordable for small business owners to access it. Shared Shortcode Service is better to be deployed especially if moderate volume of messages s in view. Moderate volume within this context ranges from 1 message to 1,000,000 messages. Shared Shortcode is very efficient and highly profitable. Being Shared, you would not be given exclusive right of ownership to the Shortcode Infastructure. What that imply is that, you are bound to share a Shortcode (e.g. 35352) with other customers within our infrastructure.

Despite this, you are not limited as you can use several Keywords of choice to direct messages to your application, website or trigger any desired response. These Keywords are prefix letters, mostly numbers, alphabets or alphanumeric and normally range between 3 and 11 characters. Keywords can also be used to brand your business because your audience would have to type the keyword in order to interact with your company or organization via your Shortcode Service. Upon Setup, we will provide a web console where you can easily access your Shortcode Messages and corresponding Earnings on a realtime basis.
