A short code gives you a "from" number that that can be easily memorized by your customers, suppliers or employees, enabling them to respond to SMS text messages. Clickatell offers two types of short codes, depending on the destination country:
Short Code Costs
Standard short codes
Standard short codes typically work across all major mobile operators and are assigned to an organization or company, which can use the number for SMS text messaging services. Mobile users receiving or sending messages to standard short codes are NOT charged any premium fees for SMS messages.
Premium rate short codes
For more information on premium rated short codes please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that network operators have imposed freeze periods lasting until the 15th of January 2014 during which time applications will not be processed. We are therefore unable to provide you with new long codes or short codes during this time.
For network specific detail, please speak to a support consultant.
