Payment by SMS, from any mobile phone

With Premium SMS (also called PSMS for short), you can accept SMS payments for various digital goods and services:

  • Virtual money for online gaming
  • Membership for online communities
  • Online and mobile content
  • SMS voting
  • Info services such as weather, traffic or news alerts, and more

End users do not need to provide credit card details for this mode of payment. It does not require registration, making it quicker for users to complete payments.

Instead, all users need to do is send a text message to a premium-rated short number. The price amount of the content they bought will be added to their mobile phone bill.
