How do I acquire a USSD service code?

It depends on each country's laws and regulatory bodies. For example, in Nigeria, a company must apply for a code from the NCC (National Communication Commission) and motivate the use of the service code (expect the approval process to take between 3 to 5 months to process the code). In South Africa, WASPA handles all applications for USSD service codes across all MNOs.

Do inquire whether the Clickatell Support Team has USSD service code stock available on hand. Reach out to our Support team if you have any questions.
