When it comes to messaging your contacts, you’ll need to comply with the various rules and regulations that are relevant to the country you’re based in and sending to. These rules are put in place to help reduce inappropriate messaging (fraudulent or smishing messages, and ultimately spam).
In the US and Canada, the regulations require that a registered (or verified) number be used to send messages to any mobile number. How do they do this?
The Campaign Registry (TCR) was launched in late 2020 and was created to validate businesses and their messaging campaigns in order to protect consumers (or mobile phone users) from scammers and also to reduce spam.
What this means is a regulated messaging environment where real businesses ask permission before they can send text message communications to their own customers, and customers are in control of who they give their contact details to. These same customers also understand that when they give their contact details out, they will only be communicated with as and when has been specified during the contact details collection process.
TCR will ultimately approve or decline your messaging campaigns. The mobile networks have very strict rules on what kind of SMS messages they can and will deliver to their mobile users. If the information shared with TCR is inaccurate and campaigns are sent that do not align with the application submitted, the SMS traffic will be blocked and you’d need to re-apply for a new 10DLC.
If you have not registered your brand and SMS campaign with TCR, your messages will likely fail as all commercial SMS traffic needs to be pre-approved by TCR and the relevant mobile networks.
As an A2P messaging provider, we adhere to a code of conduct and request that our customers do the same. And as part of this, we have partnered with various vendors and TCR to deliver your messages reliably and timeously. To do this, we need your help.
It means that when you sign up with BulkSMS, and you indicate that you are based in or sending to North America, we will automatically guide you through the application process for an incoming number. For more information on the timelines and process, visit our getting started page.
Now you know why you need an incoming number…. If you’re looking for help on your 10DLC application, look no further. We need quite a bit of information from you, and if the application is inaccurate, or incomplete leading to a “decline” from the TCR, that takes up time and effort on both sides – and we want to do things properly the first time. Ok, so here’s what we’ll need for your application, and we’ll give you some tips to get your number up and running asap!
