Approval Process

As part of the application process for a shared short code, you will need to complete a txtNation Customer Care Form (CCF). Subscription services require operators approval before making them live. For a brand new service that we don't have existing approval for, the typical time it takes for shared short codes approval form feedback for subscription services is roughly 1 - 3 weeks and the typical time to get live once your CCF has been approved is approximately 1 - 3 days for all services.
