What is a Shared Short Code SMS number?

A shared short code is a five digit number which is used by a number of customers. Each customer has a specific keyword (or keywords) to identify their own campaign traffic on that Short Code.

The Keyword is normally the deciding factor on which shared short code to use. If your chosen keyword is available on a number of short codes, you can then choose which shared short code number you would prefer to use. If it’s only available on one number, then the decision is made for you. 

Shared short code SMS numbers are much less expensive that dedicated numbers. Once you have chosen the keyword you would like to use, TextAnywhere’s Customer Service will provision the keyword on a short code, making it as easy as possible for you to set up your marketing campaign and get started.
