TextUs and 10DLC
Delivering messages to your customers
As a leader in business texting, TextUs is committed to enhancing the way businesses communicate. We hear from customers that phone calls get ignored and emails often get lost in spam folders — texting gets your messages seen and 10DLC (10-digit long code) is an additional safeguard and trust builder for our industry.
What is 10DLC?
10DLC (10 digit long code) is a formal program designed by US Carriers that secures and improves business-to-consumer text messaging, also known as A2P (Application-to-Person).
10DLC will build and maintain trust between businesses and consumers by establishing routes and validity for sending messages. It rewards companies who know their consumers and provides wanted content to them.

How Does 10DLC Affect TextUs Campaigns?
Having a long code will build your reputation with consumers. Your brand will determine the daily maximum messages you can send. Standard cases will continue as usual but additional vetting may be required for campaigns such as political, sweepstakes, or emergency. TextUs will work with you to determine the right process in order to meet compliance with 10DLC and effective messaging strategies.
