Hi:

I am trying to setup a business that offers membership login for members to buy credit to send and receive sms. Currently, i have someone doing the programming for me and will be hosting this on a server soon. One way is to have a physical gsm modem connected to the server but i am also looking at interfacing with an aggregrator. As my volume for a start is not huge, it will not be cost effective to go to the telco, so i think aggregator is my best bet.

The portion that i do not understand is that, do i need to apply for a short code?? or are they alternatives that i can use to still provide the same service as mentioned earlier send/receive? dedicated short code is just too costly.

I also read here comment about clearing house and using special key words, can someone help explain to me on this. Thanks. Huh

It is better to get account(s) from any of the bulk sms providers/aggregators

Try this:
