You need powerful tools to scale the communication between you and your customers. Twilio Short Codes are now available in Canada. This offers you a way to reach millions of customers in North America, all at once, using one API.
Text Canadian Users Faster with Short Codes
Twilio Short Codes are 5 or 6 digit phone numbers that are used by businesses to send and receive thousands of text messages instantly. Short Codes are programmed the same way as regular phone numbers, but send messages at a much faster rate of 30 messages per second or higher. This higher bandwidth messaging is perfect for applications that need to send time-sensitive or bulk messages.
Take Your Brand Across The Border
You can now address users in Canada using a vanity short code that ties the communication experience with your brand. For businesses reaching out to users in both US and Canada, it’s important to keep the brand experience consistent across borders. Now, you can send messages to customers in Canada using a short code number that matches your US short code so users in both countries will see the same number.
Helping You Navigate Your Way Into Canada
Navigating the short code approval process with carriers can be a daunting task. Twilio makes this complex process simple. Our dedicated Short Code Operations Team works with you to lease your short code in Canada and handles the carrier approval process on your behalf.
Grow Users in Canada
Companies like PayByPhone, the global leader in mobile payments for the parking industry, are already benefiting from Twilio Short Codes in the US, UK, and Canada.
“Partnering with Twilio enables our customers to receive text message reminders before their parking session expires, one of PayByPhone’s most popular features, allowing them to quickly add more time and reduce parking fines. As we continue to expand globally, we truly value our partnership with Twilio on our mission to provide a great consumer experience,” says Kush Parikh, President of PayByPhone North America.
