SHARED SHORT CODES


On a SHARED Short Code, you need a KEYWORD to identify your campaign.
When a person SMS your keyword to a Short Code (e.g. 45509) it’s called a premium SMS
The sender pays a certain price e.g. R1.50 per SMS.
Mostly used to run SMS competitions, database creation or SMS voting, etc.
Sender receives an automated reply SMS (Quick test: Sms TEST to 31647) Normal SMS
Revenue share is accumulated every time a message is sent to your keyword

Facility Fee: R0.12 + Return SMS Charge from: R0.14 to R0.28 (Volume dependent)

  • Revenue share pay-out for keywords on Shared Short Codes will only be initiated once R500.00 or more has been generated
  • You will need to receive a minimum of 500 inbound (MO) messages per dedicated short code, per month before you receive the premium SMS revenue. This will be effective after 90 days
  • If less than 500 messages are received, the revenue for that month will be kept by SMSS to cover costs. Prolonged periods of volumes below the indicated thresholds or no activity may result in re-allocation of your short code or keyword
  • Revenues will be paid to you after 90 days depending on when the operator pays SMSS. We charge a small fee for each inbound message that you receive. In addition a once-off setup fee and no monthly fees are charged for keywords or sub-keywords. A fixed monthly rental fee is charged for dedicated short codes. These charges depend on the country and number type you choose. Revenue share available in the SA and Namibia only
