A short code is a leased 5 or 6-digit number (e.g., 23329) that can send and receive SMS messages with mobile phones. They allow consumers to subscribe to mobile messaging campaigns.
Our short codes enable your application to send a high volume of text messages. Mobile Terminated (MT) or outgoing messages can be sent at a rate of up to 300 messages per second or 18,000 per minute. Mobile Originated (MO) or incoming messaging do not have any limitations. This high-throughput is great for time sensitive and general bulk SMS messages.
