A2P 10DLC Pre-Registration
By now, you’ll no doubt be aware that if you send messages within the USA, you’ll soon need to register your company with the U.S. wireless carriers under their new A2P 10DLC regulations.
The carriers originally set a target date of June 1 for brands to register for A2P-10DLC. But this deadline has now been removed. This means that YakChat’s SMS provider is now working towards a ‘phased onboarding‘ approach.
But while no definite date for onboarding has yet been set, the good news is that YakChat customers can pre-register for A2P-10DLC.
And that means you’ll be first in the queue to be formally registered with the A2P-10DLC registration hub (The Campaign Registry) by our SMS service provider as soon as it opens.
And why’s that good for you? Because it ensures that you’ll be able to continue to text from your Microsoft Teams platform without interruption.
How do I pre-register for A2P 10DLC?
Simply head to your YakChat account (or click the button below) and follow the instructions on the website
Once you’ve completed your information, we’ll submit it for review to the wireless carriers’ central A2P 10DLC registration hub – as soon as this becomes available. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of this.
Note: Right now, A2P 10DLC pre-registration is for your Company (or Brand) only. You’ll be able to register your Campaigns when you receive your company verification/approval email from the U.S. carriers – which we will forward to you once we receive it.
How long will verification take?
Once the central A2P 10DLC hub opens, we’ll register your company for verification. And although exact timelines have yet to be confirmed, we anticipate that approvals will take up to 3 business days.
Once your brand has been approved by the carriers, you’ll receive an email that will detail your Trust Score. This is a rating of either Low, Medium, or High trust. This score will influence the maximum message throughput that will be allocated to each of your campaigns.
Will I be charged for registration?
Unfortunately, the wireless carriers will charge to register with them and to send messages under the new system. However, we are currently working with our service providers to minimize the impact of this cost on our customers.
We’ll update you on the new pricing as soon as we have official confirmation of this.
