Benefits of a Dedicated Short Code

  • Higher Throughput and Performance

    Send out your messages to customers in a timely manner without worrying about getting blocked or filtered. Default throughput starts at 50 messages per second.

  • Improved Deliverability

    SMS sent using short codes allow for application-to-person (A2P) use cases like alerts & notifications and offers higher delivery rates than regular long code numbers in US & Canada.

  • Exclusive Brand Recognition

    Unlike Long Codes, Short Codes are not tied to an area code and can be used across the country. Imagine a nationwide exclusive brand identity under one easy to remember number.

  • Choice of Vanity Short Codes

    You can reserve the exclusive use of a unique, SMS Short Code number, or phrase, for your brand. For example, PLIVO (75486). Vanity Short Codes are subject to number availability.
