What is Shortcode and why do I need it?
Shortcodes are 6 digit phone numbers used for high-volume text messaging. Unlike traditional long (traditional 10-digit phone numbers) which are rate-limited to about 10 messages per minute, shortcodes allow you to send a large number text messages in a very short period of time. They are useful for any company looking to send a high volume of texts, or  anyone looking to send messages to large groups (over 500). If you are looking for shortcode access our Messaging Plus(  and Custom plans (  offer access.If you have any questions about shortcode our friendly sales team would be more than happy to talk you through it.
