What's a short code?

Short codes are special numbers that are shorter than normal long telephone numbers. They are designed for high-throughput, two-way messaging. They are network specific access codes used for sending and receiving both SMS and MMS. These short codes usually consist of three to eight digits, varying by country.

What's the difference between regular long numbers and short codes?

The biggest difference is that long numbers were designed for P2P messages and a low throughput of messages, while short codes were designed for A2P bulk and higher throughput messaging. This is via a preapproved route, eliminating filtering.

What are short codes useful for?

Short codes are more easily recognized, menaing customers are more likely to get in touch. They also help to lower costs in high-output situations, such as mass automated campaigns, leading to higher profit margins and more opportunities to invest in companies' customer experience.
