Short Codes Keywords Overview

Keywords are short memorable word that are used with Short codes. They are used as call-to-action words e.g TEXT ‘Yes’ to 20013. These are words that can be used to distinguish messages being received through a shared short code or different services running in a dedicated Short Code.

For example, when you use as a keyword on 20013. Whenever a person sms to 20013, we’ll receive a message and we will forward that message and contacts to your platform and you can then process it in your own interface.



These are USSD that are allocated to one client only. Businesses or organizations that need increased customization choose to use dedicated USSD. A dedicated USSD is your personal short code; no other business or service will have the same short code.


Since Dedicated USSD are very expensive to set up and run we have introduces shared USSD that make this service more affordable for our clients.
