INITIAL CHECKLIST TO START TEXTING
Log In to the ThruText Admin Console
We recommend bookmarking this link to log into your ThruText account: getthru.app/login.
You should have an invitation in your inbox to be an owner on your account. If this is the first time you're using ThruText, you'll need to fill out a short form to create a user profile.
Trouble logging in? See if any of these tips do the trick. If not, send a note to email@example.com
Complete your 10DLC Brand & Use Case Registration
Once you've logged in, select Brand & Use Case Registration from the left side menu under Account Tools. Please be sure to have the necessary information available, including your organization’s LEGAL NAME, Employer Identification Number (EIN), and other identifying information. You can find step-by-step instructions here.
NOTE: If any of the information submitted doesn’t match your organization’s filings, the registration will be rejected, and the appeal process will significantly delay your messaging. Please verify all the information is accurate before submitting and note all fields are required.
With your Brand Registration submitted, you'll then need to choose from the available use cases. You should choose any that may apply to your future messaging needs. More detailed use case descriptions and instructions are available here.
If you are a political campaign, party, or PAC you will be required to complete the Campaign Verify registration process in order to acquire a Campaign Verify Token. Detailed instructions are available here.
Carriers are now requiring organizations to provide verifiable website information. For more information and guidance, review our 10DLC Website Requirements article.
Fill out your brand and use case registration ASAP. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your submissions aren't accepted the same day.
Your account will not be able to send text messages until your use case has completed manual vetting. Once it is ready, you'll see the yellow status change to a green "Approved" on the 10DLC page, as noted in this guide: Use Case Status.
After five business days, if you are still not approved, please reach out to email@example.com, and we will review your status.
