Affordable Pricing and Easy Payment Options

Short code pricing is straightforward, with flexible payment options to fit your budget cycle. For a Select short code – one you choose yourself – the lease rate is $1,000 per month. For a Random code – one assigned to you by the system  the lease rate is $500 per month.

Once the code is leased, you gain the exclusive right to use your code throughout your lease period. These fees are non-refundable regardless of whether any wireless service provider agrees to activate your code. Payment must be received in full for the duration of the registration within 60 days of your order or your code will be placed back in the available pool.

Important: You need a Short Code Registry account in order to get a code. Once set up, select "Apply for New Short Code" and complete the order form. You can purchase up to 20 short codes on a single order, each leased for 3-, 6- or 12-month terms.

Length of Lease

There are three types of lease terms: 3, 6 and 12 months. Choose the lease length and payment method that best suit your needs. Many customers keep their leases active through the convenience of auto-renewal.
