What's best a Short-Code or a Long-Code?


For choosing between an SMS Short-Code and a Long-Code we have put together a list below. SMS Short-Codes are typically 4-5 digits with Long-Codes being 7-8 digits in length.


Short Code

  • Short-Codes are easier to remember.
  • Faster to send a text message using a Short-Code.
  • Can offer Premium Billing on a Short-Code on a wide range of SMS tariffs.


Long Codes

  • Cheaper if using a Dedicated Long-Code.
  • Faster to set up a Long-Code (if dedicated).
  • Cannot run billing or premium mobile billing on a Long-Code.
