A short code is a 5-digit number (e.g. 22141). That carries a premium or standard charge. Using a short
code allows businesses the functionality to generate sales leads, compile databases and create revenue.
It also allows customers to opt-in to the company’s SMS campaigns, alert services and to enter SMS
competitions.


USSD
USSD stands for Unstructured Supplementary Services Data. It is a technology that is used to send information
(usually text menus) between a mobile phone and an application on a mobile network. USSD Codes can
encompass once off requests or interactive navigation with a menu-based application. It is extremely
effective when targeting users with feature phones as it is supported by all handsets and networks and
requires no internet to connect. It therefore has great reach and adoption within your market.
USSD can also be integrated with mobile money services to allow businesses to collect payments from
mobile subscribers. The USSD charges the customers a standard rate or it can be reverse billed to the
corporate.
