Do great things with

USSD

USSD is a convenient way to get customers to speak to you because it is unidirectional. The user dials a USSD code to access services from a company.

Why USSD

USSD applications run on the network, not on a user's device. As such, they don't have to be installed on the user's phone, which is an advantage for users with feature phones that have limited storage space.

USSD codes start with an asterisk (*) followed by groups of digits which may be separated by additional asterisks and is terminated with a hash symbol (#).

How it Works

1

A user sends a USSD request.

2

The USSD gateway forwards the request to the user's USSD application which respond to the request.

3

The response goes back to the USSD gateway, which displays the content of that response on the screen of the user's mobile phone.
