Unifonic Platform Update to Accommodate the
New CITC Regulations
To assure smooth compliance to the new regulations, we have added some changes to the way we manage sender IDs so that we will help you in executing marketing campaigns without service interruption.
To accommodate the change, Unifonic platform will be adding the letters "AD" at the end of each sender ID in campaigns targeting Saudi clients that do not comply with the new regulation according to the following specifications:
- If the sender is equal or less than 8 letters long, the letters "AD" will be added automatically to the end of the sender.
- If the sender is more than 8 letters long, All letters after the 8th letter will be replaced automatically with the letters "AD".
- Messages sent using a numeric sender will be rejected.
- Marketing messages will be paused at 10 PM Saudi time and will resume automatically again at 7 AM.
If you believe that this change will impact your campaigns, you may and request new senders, or simply contact our support team firstname.lastname@example.org and request new senders.
Summary of the new regulations are listed below:
- Marketing messages should include the letter "AD" at the end of the used sender ID.
- Numeric sender IDs are not allowed.
- Don't work with unlicensed resellers.
- There will be no changes on the sender IDs used for sending OTP, notifications or alerting messages.
