Premium Text Service
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.
