To do any SMS messaging in the US, a short code must be leased from the Common Short Code Administration (CSCA). The CSCA charges $500 per month to lease a Random short code and $1,000 per month to lease a Vanity code (5 or 6 digit short code that you specifically select). These fees do not establish connectivity, but only give you ownership of a unique, or “dedicated” short code number.
We will complete the CSCA application on your behalf in conjunction with your overall GOMOTEXT application at no additional charge.
In case you wish to avoid the upfront investment and ongoing monthly costs, as an alternate solution, you can instantly be set up on one of our short codes.
In either case we will brand and provide you access to our MMA Compliant Campaign Manager SMS Platform to manage your Mobile Marketing Programs.
