Brand and Campaign Registration
⚠️ Campaign Verify ⚠️
Verification for political campaigns is handled by Campaign Verify. If you do qualify, you should begin the registration process with Campaign Verify ASAP!
For more information, please see Campaign Verify's FAQ document.
Customers joining us after October 1st, 2021 will be set up with 10DLC.
Existing customers will need to transition their accounts to 10DLC before September 24, 2021 to ensure uninterrupted service!
Transitioning your organization to 10DLC will happen in two phases:
- You will provide us with the information required to register a 10DLC brand on your behalf.
- You will sign an updated service agreement covering 10DLC changes, including 10DLC Pricing and 10DLC Content Compliance.
We will not register a brand or campaign on your behalf until the updated service agreement has been signed and we have the required brand registration information. We anticipate a 3-5 business day delay between your completion of these two tasks and your brand being ready with carriers to send messages.
