Reverse Billing SMS
Reverse Billing SMS is a process whereby small charges are made to a subscriber’s mobile phone in return for a service. Typically the subscriber sends an SMS message to a short code number (usually 5 digits ), often including a keyword in the message and in return receives a service or a piece of information for which a charge is made on that subscriber’s mobile phone.
Typical applications include charged voting systems for television and the press, subscription campaigns for a football team’s news service allowing fans to receive video goal flashes at 50p a goal, or prize draw and competition type marketing applications.
In addition to this Fastsms can offer hosting to media content developers and provide a delivery platform with reverse billing support for all media including logos, ringtones and java games and applications.
This facility opens up many new business opportunities never before available. Competitions, alerts, news flashes, quizzes and priority information are just a few of the areas where Reverse Billing SMS can be used as the basis of a business.
At Fastsms we can offer reverse billing applications across all 5 UK networks. Costs vary dependant on service level but start from as little as £99 per month for a reverse-billed shared short code number.
