Premium Rate Voice uses a premium rate number. There are a type of non-geographic number, used when businesses require inbound calls to be charged at a higher rate than that of normal numbers.

Part of the call charge is paid to the service provider (you) so your business can be funded via the calls. A great example would be a technical support line that offers high value services that couldn’t be billed any other way.

What Do We Do?

Premium Rate SMS

Premium Rate SMS (PSMS) is a simple way for consumers to pay for services and products via their mobile handsets. There is no need for time consuming registration or potentially unsafe credit card details being given; consumers are simply charged for sending and receiving a premium rate text message. A quick and convenient payment mechanic for donations and services payments. Ease and convenience differentiates PSMS vs traditional e-commerce payment solutions. High volume micro-payments, either for one-time payment instances or repeat (subscription based) payments requirements.

SMS payments are text based. They are processed typically through reverse billing i.e. by sending a premium rated text message to the purchaser’s phone and debiting the amount from the prepaid credit or charging it to the purchaser’s post pay phone bill in the next billing cycle.

SMS payments usually are considered a form of micro payments. These are used primarily for smaller value purchases or peer to peer money transfer. SMS payments are processed in real time and provide a cheap and convenient alternate to traditional payments mechanisms available under the formal banking channels where costs for micro payments are considerably higher.
