Premium Rate Text Numbers

Premium Rate Text messaging provides a fast and convenient facility to make payment for information services via text messaging - billed directly to the customer’s mobile phone.

Popular applications include text-to-win competitions and promotions, interactive text quizzes, voting by text, lowest unique bid auctions, subscription-based information services and text alerts, and charity text message donations.

Premium rate text services use what is called a reverse billing text. The text message each respondent receives in back to their mobile phone (following their consent to participate with your promotion or service) is the charging mechanism. Premium rate text numbers can be set to charge between 25 pence and £10.00.

Premium rate text can be applied to endless revenue generating opportunities; examples include:

  • Text to Win competitions
  • A text quiz
  • News items
  • Text Voting
  • Sporting updates/scores/results
  • Subscription services
  • Database queries
  • Access to chargeable content and downloads
  • Promotional text vouchers for redemption at a store or event
  • Charity - donate by text message - fundraising

Our systems cater for simple or advanced premium rate text campaigns.
