Further Information

Approval Process

The same applies to both shared codes and dedicated codes, see forum entry Lithuania - Premium SMS, Short Code Requirements. There is no formal carrier or regulator approval process to run on our shared lines in Lithuania, e.g. we dont have to apply to the carriers or the regulator to get you permission to go live. txtNation will however check your service when you submit your service description as part of the account setup procedure. It will take roughly 2-3 days to get live once your CCF has been approved. For subscription services, this time can increase. Typically it takes 1-3 weeks to receive approval for premium sms subscription services becuase operator approval is required.

 

 

Promotional Guidelines

The same applies to both shared codes and dedicated codes, see forum entry Lithuania - Premium SMS, Short Code Requirement for more information regarding Promotional Guidelines.

 

 

Message Flow Requirements

The same applies to both shared codes and dedicated codes, see forum entry Lithuania - Premium SMS, Short Code Requirement for more information regarding Message Flow Requirements. We do not have specific message flow approvals on our Lithuanian lines that you must adhere to. Providing you are adhering to the regulations set by the regulator, that is all that is required.

 

 

Service Types

The same applies to both shared codes and dedicated codes, see forum entry Lithuania - Premium SMS, Short Code Requirement for more information regarding Service Types. Microbilling, Voting and Content services are quite usual, and are normally approved so long as they adheres to the Lithuanian Regulations.

 

 

Billing Types

We operate Mobile Terminating (MT) and Limited charge (LC) billing line on shared lines in Lithuania. See forum entry "What are the SMS billing types available?" for more information on these billing types.

Shortcode and Keywords

On our shared code in Lithuania we operate on a 4 digit shortcode for each carrier. Adult content is possible with the activation of an adult short code.

 

 

Frequency and Amounts

The same applies to both shared codes and dedicated codes, see forum entry Lithuania - Premium SMS, Short Code Requirement for more information regarding Frequency and Amounts.

 

 

Tax

The current Lithuanian rate of tax is available via Wikipedia. The out-payments on our rate cards are exclusive of VAT, so if you are VAT registered you can claim a higher outpayment than is shown. 

 


Dedicated Codes 

Dedicated codes are available with a 5 - 8 week lead time depending on carrier availability, the carriers approve based on their backlog, the time of year, price point and service type.
