What’s the difference between Zipwhip texting and short code texting?

Last Updated: Oct 01, 2018 03:22PM PDT
Short Code Texting
  • Short codes are 5 or 6 digit numbers (used in addition to your existing landline or toll free number) that can dial and receive SMS messages with mobile phones
  • Short codes are costly and can take awhile to set up
  • Largely marking based (opt-in); meaning customers must choose to send to or receive messages from these numbers

Zipwhip Texting
  • Zipwhip uses your existing landline or toll free number
  • Zipwhip texting is cost effective at $35.00 or $100.00/month (Click 'Here' or visit zipwhip.com to select your package)
  • Zipwhip allows you to connect with and contact your customers on a 'peer-to-peer' basis; so you can have a direct dialog with your customers
