A virtual number, also referred to as a dedicated number, can either be a four-digit short code, or a long code with a full-length phone number depending on your needs. Virtual numbers can be used for two-way messaging, donations, competitions, polls, and to send SMS messages in countries where a virtual number is required.
Contact sales and they will help you set up virtual numbers in countries of your choosing right away.
Enable mobile users to donate to your charity easily. Set up keywords, e.g. DONATE20, on your own virtual number or on our shared short code (1204). When a mobile user sends an SMS message to the dedicated number with your keyword, a fixed amount is automatically deducted from the user’s mobile account.
Enable two-way messaging with a virtual number. This makes it possible for your customers to receive support via SMS messages, which you can handle through your preferred support platform. Set it up via Zendesk or any other support platform out there that supports SMS messaging.
Run competitions, polls or a combination of both with keywords on your own virtual number or our shared short code. Enable users to respond to a multiple-choice question via SMS and pick a winner between the contestants.
Use virtual numbers to send SMS messages in countries, such as the United States, China & Turkey, where a virtual number is required in order to send SMS messages. See our complete list with country restrictions here.
