Premium Rate SMS Short Codes
As demand for paid-for services and content on mobile grows premium
SMS provides a consistent, fast and user-friendly payment method
that delivers content and information services for making a single
payment or establishing a subscription SMS service via mobile.
Using Premium Rate SMS will lead to a charge on
a customer’s mobile phone bill, or it will debit from available
funds on a non-contract phone.
What is a Premium Rate SMS Short Code?
Shorter than a typical telephone or mobile number, premium short
codes are 5 digits in the UK. They are used to route SMS text messages
from mobile phones to interactive mobile messaging applications.
They are designed to be shorter to read and faster to use, therefore
they are easier to remember than long telephone numbers or website
A premium short code allows content owners, promoters,
service providers and application owners to bill customers by sending
a chargeable response message back to a respondent’s mobile
handset. This is often called ‘reverse billing’.
The unique properties of mobile mean it is possible to generate
immediate revenue using interactive premium SMS services such as
voting, competition entry, charity donations and news alerts, as
well as downloading mobile content.
