Non-Premium Short Codes

Short CodesWorld-Text Non-Premium Short Codes provide a 2-way SMS messaging solution used to receive and send SMS text messages through a memorable short phone number or a "short code".

Short codes are easy to communicate to consumers and more memorable than long phone numbers; in the UK, short codes are a 5-digit number, such as 84101.

World-Text Non-Premium Short Codes can be used to enable an interactive direct response mechanism for any marketing/ad campaign or interactive service.

World Text Non-Premium Short Codes can either be unique or shared:

  • A dedicated short code offers your brand a dedicated number for all campaigns
  • A shared short code is faster to set-up and more cost-effective, but requires consumers to add a "keyword" in front of each SMS to direct the message to your specific service

A more cost effective solution for inbound SMS is a 'Virtual Number' if you need a dedicated number without the use of keywords, this is the same length as a normal mobile number. For more information please see here.

Please visit SMS & The Law for important information regarding SMS marketing. Inbound messages are FREE to receive by HTTP, SMPP or SMTP.

Full access to the Auto-Responder for FREE.
