Learn how to request a New Zealand short code in Klaviyo. 

Before you begin

Please note the following:

  • Short codes are the only SMS sending number available in New Zealand (NZ)
  • Short code applications take 5–6 weeks to complete
  • If approved, the short code can only send to New Zealand recipients; it cannot be used to send to people in any other country 

We also strongly recommend reviewing our NZ short code checklist so you know what information you need to provide. 

Until your short code is approved, you will not be able to do the following in New Zealand:

  • Collect SMS consent
  • Upload SMS consent
  • Send SMS messages
