Shared Shortcode Service for USA
A shared short code is a 5 or 6 digit short code number which is shared by more than one company. Issuing a dedicated ShortCode usually takes some time, technical expertise, and an ongoing financial commitment. Wire2air’s Shared Short Code System removes many of these barriers to begin customers to run applications and services on Wire2Air’s pre-provisioned Short Codes at a fraction of the cost of setting up a dedicated Short Code and inter carrier connection.
Wire2air messaging platform employs an intelligent keyword-routing system and secure HTTP API that allows customers to both send and receive SMS messages with the speed and reliability of direct inter carrier connections. Advanced features include the ability to automatically handle opt-in/out requirements, create sub-keyword routing, and establish “sticky sessions” with wireless subscribers
Sharing a Wire2air short code is the fastest way to get into the mobile space. For instance, clients using the Wire2air platform can create a keyword like “DEALS” and within 10 seconds, that keyword is live and can receive texts from any carrier in the United States. Becoming a mobile marketer takes seconds, not months. Your time to market with a shared short code is extraordinary.
Short codes are expensive; it cost you $1000-$1500 per month to own it. If you are running a campaign on a shared short code, you can get started in as low as $99 a month and start collecting mobile numbers in a minute and broadcast messages.
Shared short codes are wonderful for the small business with the small budget or for the enterprise that wants to run POC. These businesses can get into the market quickly, and for not a lot of money. However, if you a well-known brand in your space, you definitely want to consider a dedicated code.
