How long will it take for my short code application to be approved?

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. E.g., in the USA, this will take between 12 and 16 weeks, in Canada roughly 8 to 12 weeks (subject to carrier approval), and in South Africa it could take 10 - 21 days.

You will receive an email and portal notification from us as soon as your short code application has been approved.

Contact our new business development team for an update on your short code application.
