USA / Shared Code Web Based Opt-in Requiring a Reply (WO-RAR) or PIN Opt-in (WO-PIN) / Requirements and Restrictions

Follow

Q: What do I need to display on my promotions in USA to run on your shared codes if I want to operate a pin based opt-in (WO-PIN) or a web based opt-in requiring a reply (WO-RAR)?

 

A: Please be aware that WO-PIN is only available with carrier approval. It is not currently available without carrier approval on our shared codes.

For WO-RAR You need to use txtNation's Dynamic Shortcode Loader with an extra variable "&termsonly=1".

 

Here is an example finalized link ready to deploy:

 How is this done?

Adapt the following link to your required circumstances, e.g. change the price, shortcode, colours, etc. 

http://client.txtnation.com/client_scripts/launcher/launcher.html 

Use http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html to get the RGB code for the colors you want. Note that website informs you that the RGB variables contain "." (fullstops), you will need to change them to "," (commas). If you are using Google Chrome as your browser, you can also use https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/hmdcmlfkchdmnmnmheododdhjedfccka?hl=en

 

Please make sure that you do load the image on your site using the above method. DO NOT copy the image onto your server, as this will mean it is no longer dynamic and we won't be able to make changes to it.

 

To operate Pin Web Opt-in you will need to identify the carrier the user is on to be able to perform the correct "&network=" variable post. To do this, you can use a drop down where the user selects their carrier, or you can use txtNation's Carrier Lookup Tool. If you wish to use the Carrier Lookup Tool, please speak to your account manager for pricing. 

 

 

 

 

Or if you prefer to perform this via code:

Adapt the following link to your required circumstances, e.g. change the price, shortcode, colours, etc. 

http://us.txtnation.com/shortcode.php?shortcode=23333&shortcode_color=233,14,91&background_color=0,0,0&text_color=205,205,255&cost=$4.99&termsonly=1

 

Then base64 encode everything after 

http://us.txtnation.com/shortcode.php?

 

e.g. take shortcode=23333&shortcode_color=233,14,91&background_color=0,0,0&text_color=205,205,255&cost=$4.99&termsonly=1

 

put that into a base64 encoder such as http://www.motobit.com/util/base64-decoder-encoder.asp

 

Insert the base64 encoded output after http://us.txtnation.com/shortcode.php?vars= 

 

the result wil be the link for you to deploy.
