These are the basic steps when setting up a mobile short code:

  1. Plan -- Determine what objective that you want from the short code
  2. Design -- Select up to three keywords to use in order of preference. i.e. text mykeyword to 51444
  3. Order -- Fill in the application and forward to us. 
  4. Confirm -- Make the payment for the invoiced amount ( setup fee + first months service )
  5. Monitor -- Start using your short code keyword

It can take 24-48 hours to get your keyword approved and your account created.
