Why Use Short Codes?
Short codes are a simple, accessible way to communicate with users. They are “common” because they work across all participating wireless carriers.
Whether an alert, product discount, donation, or notification, a short code is a trusted, reliable, and powerful way to engage audiences through texting.
Short codes are easy to remember, have open rates above 90%, enjoy a high degree of consumer trust, and have very high deliverability relative to other messaging platforms.
Affordable Pricing and Easy Payment Options
Short code pricing is straightforward, with flexible payment options to fit your budget cycle. For a Select short code – one you choose yourself – the lease rate is $1,000 per month. For a Random code – one assigned to you by the system – the lease rate is $500 per month.
Once the code is leased from usshortcodes.com, you gain the exclusive right to use your code throughout your lease period. These fees are non-refundable regardless of whether any wireless service provider agrees to activate your code. Payment must be received in full for the duration of the registration within 60 days of your order or your code will be placed back in the available pool.
Important: You need a Short Code Registry account in order to get a code. Once set up, select "Apply for New Short Code" and complete the order form. You can purchase up to 20 short codes on a single order, each leased for 3-, 6-, or 12-month terms.
