A shared short code is a 5 or 6 digit number used to send and receive SMS or text messages on cellular networks. Companies that use shared short codes are approved by the carriers to send text messages into their networks.
A shared short code is one that is shared by multiple accounts with each individual account distinguished by a specific keyword. The advantage of using a shared short code is that the cost is much less than leasing a dedicated short code. There are some limitations when using a shared short code because it is shared among different companies and programs; however it is a great way to start growing your text message marketing campaign.
When you sign up for the Opt It Mobile service, all of your messages will be delivered using short codes ensuring that your message is received by the cellular carriers and delivered to the intended recipient.
