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.
