Two Way SMS

Two-way SMS facilitates interactive text messaging between businesses and customers, promoting real-time communication and feedback exchange, leading to enhanced customer experience and stronger connections.

[ The Echo of Connection ]

Where Every Message
Finds a Response.

Two Way SMS utilizes a concise five-digit number known as a short code (eg. 54321), or a long code (a full number)  enabling users to send and receive messages through this platform. Two-way SMS, also known as interactive SMS or two-way text messaging, is a powerful communication tool that enables bi-directional exchange of text messages between businesses or organizations and their customers.

Unlike traditional one-way SMS, where information is sent from a sender to a recipient without any possibility of response, two-way SMS facilitates a dynamic conversation between both parties.

With two-way SMS, businesses can send important updates, promotions, appointment reminders, and other relevant information to their customers. Simultaneously, customers can respond to these messages, making it an interactive and engaging communication channel.

[ How It Works ]

The 2 way conversation: you can have either

Dedicated Short Code

This is solely owned by you creating a memorable brand identity

eg.

send ‘INFOPROMO‘ to 54321

Shared Short Code

It is used by multiple users and differentiated by a keyword.

eg.

send ‘2-WAY SMS‘ to 54321 (brand ‘A’)

send ‘INFOPROMO‘ to 54321 (brand ‘B’)

Two-Way SMS FAQs

Short codes, tailored for each network, act as unique access codes facilitating the exchange of messages (SMS and MMS) between consumers and businesses. These codes are typically shorter than regular mobile phone numbers and typically consist of three to eight digits, varying based on the country.

The primary distinction between these two sender types lies in their intended usage. Virtual long numbers were specifically created to facilitate person-to-person (P2P) messages with a moderate volume of messages. On the other hand, short codes were developed to handle application-to-person (A2P) bulk messaging with higher throughput. Short codes utilize a preapproved route, eliminating the need for filtering.

As the demand for messaging channels evolved over time, carriers intervened to gain better control over the traffic on their networks. Their goal was to enhance security and ensure better deliverability of messages.

In certain countries, it is obligatory to use a short code Sender ID to maintain the sender’s identity transparency for compliance purposes, and an initial opt-in message from the MNO (Mobile Network Operator) must be sent.

Likewise, in some countries, specific keywords like STOP, INFO, and HELP need to be supported to adhere to local regulations.

It is important to note that short codes will exclusively function on domestic phones within the country where the short code is registered, even when the user is roaming abroad.
