There is no such thing as an international USSD shortcode that can work in any country. Shortcodes are expensive and a USSD service provider has to purchase one from EACH mobile operator. Imagine that there is a way to access the service internationally by calling an appropriate number. This is possible with Global USSD platform by using our patented Call2Service technology.
Without Call2Service technology you are confronted with:
- Shortcode approval process with mobile operators
- Huge expenses if you are planning to cover a country, let alone several countries
- Non-standard protocols
- Non-standard integration with each mobile operator
- Need of business connections within operators to start the process
Cost-wise the difference for service providers is incomparable. Service provider only pays for traffic and receives technical support. All that without leaving your office and negotiating with mobile operators! For end users, USSD through Call2Service is free of charge. Options for C2S include an international or a toll-free or a national or a short phone number.
The only limitations here is that it is impossible to support 100% of all operators worldwide. We continuously improve our delivery methods by setting up new POPs. Coverage is constantly improved.
