Yes, you can get your own short code to lease through one of the gateways we are built on. They are about $500-$1000/month through them and take about 8-12 weeks to get approved. However it is advisable that each user account in the platform has their own dedicated short code because each account is unique and identified by the number(s) assigned to their account. It’s how we know where to route any incoming SMS.
In addition to that, major mobile carriers, including Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, are moving away from different brands/businesses using the same short code(shared short code). In 2021, shared short codes will no longer be supported by the carriers and all brands will be required to use their own dedicated phone number for SMS marketing, either their own dedicated short code or toll-free number(s).
Our platform mainly uses standard 10 digit long codes and toll-free numbers. See here for more info: https://www.ultrasmsscript.com/support/who-provides-the-sms-services/ and https://www.ultrasmsscript.com/support/what-is-the-difference-between-long-codes-and-toll-free-numbers/
