The 2023 10DLC Registration Smackdown

If you are an SMS & MMS provider offering A2P 10-digit long code (10DLC) messaging, you’re definitely aware that registration is no longer optional in 2023

Throughout the first half of this year, nearly all A2P text messaging API providers have announced deadlines for their customers to register all 10DLC traffic with The Campaign Registry (TCR) or face blockages and complete cutoffs on unregistered messages after the deadline.

Considering TCR registration has technically been mandatory since its inception in 2021, we believe enforcing registration is a bit past due. After all, registered 10DLC traffic is rewarded with higher throughput/rate limits, zero filtering for improved deliverability, and lower Carrier pass-through fees. It’s the best 10DLC messaging experience for a positive ROI. 

So the issue isn’t TCR registration. It’s that these same providers only support manual registration (meaning their customer has to do it) combined with manual Direct Connect Aggregator (DCA) vetting (on the provider’s side). Altogether, it’s been reported that businesses have been waiting anywhere between 4-8 weeks or more to complete. 

Businesses are being impacted with lost revenue and threatened customer retention. Overhead up, ROI down.
