What are the advantages of selecting a short code?
A short code provides a specialized range of enterprise solutions designed for bulk Application-to-Person (A2P) messaging.
Exclusive vs. Shared Short CodesPreviously, businesses had the choice between opting for a dedicated or shared short code. Shared short codes allowed businesses to leverage the advantages of a short code at a more affordable cost. However, American carriers have completely phased out shared short codes as of June 1, 2021, in an effort to combat spam and fraud. Consequently, dedicated short codes are now the sole option for businesses seeking to harness the full capabilities of bulk SMS.
