What is a Short Code?

A Short Code is an abbreviated mobile number, usually 5 or 6 digits, which is used as a destination address for two-way messaging.

There are two types of Short Code:

  1. A unique Short Code; and
  2. A shared MessageBird Short Code.

The shared Short Code can be used by multiple MessageBird clients, using keywords to differentiate the traffic.

If you would like a unique code, please contact MessageBird via sales@messagebird.com.
