United States Text Messaging

The prevalence of mobile phones across the United States makes them the perfect tool to engage directly with your customers. Using Clickatell’s SMS Platform, businesses can share promotions, launch products, and secure transactions safely and reliably.

However, if you’re communicating with customers using text messaging in the United States, the law dictates that you must use two-way SMS numbers

Fortunately, Clickatell can assist! Through our SMS Platform you can either use an SMS long number or short code. Both options enable your business to engage in two-way communication with your customers, wherever they are, whenever you need.

Plus, there are no setup fees or hidden costs. All incoming SMS replies are free, so you only pay for your outbound SMS text messages.
