Monetize content, goods and services by enabling customers to pay with a simple SMS.
Premium SMS is one of the simplest and most widely available payment methods, because all it takes is to send and receive an SMS message – a feature supported by every mobile phone. Customers send a text message to a premium-rated SMS short code, after which the purchase amount is charged to their mobile phone bill.

A Premium SMS number, also called an SMS short code or short number, is a short digit sequence (3-7 digits) used to charge Premium SMS payments. They are shorter than a regular telephone number and therefore easy to remember. Premium SMS numbers are pre-approved by mobile carriers. After end users send an SMS message to this number, they are charged a certain amount to their mobile phone bill (can be one-time or subscription-based).
The difference is that in a Premium SMS flow users can complete payments by sending an SMS message to a short code. After that, the price amount will be charged to their mobile operator bill. In a Direct Carrier Billing flow, payments are completed over mobile internet or WiFi.
Mobile Originated (MO) SMS is a text message which end users send from their mobile phone. For example, an MO SMS would be “DESSERT” - a keyword which a customer sends to a short code number. MO billing refers to the charge that is made when the user sends SMS message to a service provider. On the other hand, Mobile Terminated (MT) billing refers to the charge that is made when the user receives an MT SMS message from a service provider.
