10DLC, or 10-digit long code, is a messaging solution that allows businesses to send a high-volume of SMS from a local number. It is sometimes referred to as “local A2P messaging” because cell carriers have approved A2P (application-to-person) messaging on 10DLC.
Before 10DLC, 10-digit numbers were only sanctioned for P2P (person-to-person) messaging. Now, businesses can access a much higher throughput rate. In other words, more messages per minute can be sent on 10DLC than on traditional 10-digit numbers. This makes 10DLC an attractive option for businesses that want to engage in SMS marketing.
10DLC is designed to replace shared short codes, which present a higher risk of spam. It is also more affordable than dedicated short codes.
Faster, more reliable, and trusted by customers. 10DLC is the next generation of text messaging.
Recognizable Area Code
Ever received a call from an unfamiliar area code? You probably ignored it. Your customers do the same thing! Even with texts. Reach them more effectively with a local number.
Reliable, Fast Delivery
With a local number, your messages are sent from a number sanctioned for Livecomm messaging. This means you can count on them to be delivered quickly.
Want the security and reliability of a dedicated short code, without the high cost? A 10-digit long code is a more cost-effective alternative.
