After you've applied for a short code (find out how to apply here), the provisioning process depends on the short code and country, and varies from region to region. You will receive an email from us as soon as it's approved.
In the USA, this will take between 12 and 16 weeks. In Canada this will take roughly 8 to 12 weeks (subject to carrier approval). In South Africa, it could take 10 - 21 days.
Contact our new business development team for an update on your short code application.
