Be compliant with 10DLC

Quiq offers customers an easy solution for becoming 10DLC compliant

What is 10DLC?

10DLC is a local 10-digit phone number that can support a high volume of text messages. Mobile carriers have designated 10DLC phone numbers for B2C messaging to counter the rise of spam over SMS and MMS. This change will make it easier for businesses to connect with their customers as undesirable messages will be prevented from being sent.

Think of this as the Verified checkbox found in Twitter but for SMS.

Why does 10DLC matter?

North American carriers are launching 10DLC as the sanctioned Application-to-Person (A2P) messaging service. It is important to register your 10DLC to avoid fines and blocked messages in the future. 

If a business decides not to register their brand and continues using their 10DLC phone number, they will eventually experience disruption of service. Certain carriers will stop supporting SMS traffic altogether from 10DLC numbers that are unregistered.
