What is a shortcode?

A shortcode is a five or six-digit number (e.g., 12345) used to send to and receive SMS messages from mobile phones. Shortcodes are allowed for Application to Person (A2P) communication, which is why businesses that need to communicate to customers on a large scale can only use shortcodes (and not long codes). Plivo offers dedicated shortcodes for your business needs.
