We provide a wide range of robust mobile services around the world. You can find more about what we offer in Costa Rica below. We are continually improving our services and you should contact us so that we can advise you about the most appropriate solutions available in Costa Rica.

Premium MT SMS - Costa Rica

Premium "mobile terminated" SMS messaging is available in Costa Rica. This is a profitable way to generate revenue by sending a message to the consumer's mobile handset. We can advise you on all your options for billing in Costa Rica.

Number Lookup (HLR)

Enhance your txtNation service in this region by using our Number Lookup service, which is available in Costa Rica and many other countries. Our Number Lookup service allows you to find out the network operator and other details about the consumer's mobile phone. This can be helpful in tailoring your txtNation service to consumers in Costa Rica.

VSIM/Longcode

We offer Long Codes and or Virtual SIMs in Costa Rica, which is more international than Short Codes. This allows you to receive messages from consumers around the world from a Costa Rica-based telephone number. You cannot use a Virtual SIM to bill consumers. Premium services require a Short Code.

JunglePay

txtNation allows you to build a fully customised mobile billing service. If you require a mobile billing solution without the need for development, try our ready-made JunglePay widget, which you can create in just minutes.

Compliance matters

Wherever you operate mobile services, you must obey local telecommunication regulations. We can advise you on any aspect of your mobile campaign or billing service. Regulators publish guidelines that must be fully understood before you can use our platform. Operating a mobile service in one country may be very different to running one elsewhere.

This page contains some basic compliance information that may be of use to anyone wishing to run a service in Costa Rica. However, you should always consult with your account manager or our support team before you launch to obtain more comprehensive guidance.

This is to protect us, your company, and all the consumers in Costa Rica, where they expect a high quality service. Let us support you to get this right.
