Short codes are special 5 or 6 digit phone numbers that can be used for both SMS and MMS messaging. They typically have higher delivery rates than traditional long code numbers, but as a result come with a hefty price tag.
If you already have a short code phone number you can port it into Avochato. You also have the option to lease a short code number through Avochato. Reach out to our sales staff for an estimate at (415) 214-8977.
