Premium SMS enables you to charge new and existing customers for content or services by sending a reverse-billed message to their mobile phone. The mobile user must 'opt-in' and accept the charges by sending a text to a Shortcode. Typically Premium is used to bill for competition entries and ringtone/wallpaper downloads.

Dedicated Shortcode

You can choose to own a 'dedicated' Shortcode which is unique to your organisation.

Shared Shortcode

Alternatively you may wish to use a 'keyword' on an existing 'Shared' Shortcode. If you opt to use a Shared Shortcode, your incoming messages will need to start with your unique keyword. You would for example request mobile users to text COMPANY followed by a space and their message to the Shortcode, e.g. COMPANY MESSAGE to XXXXX.

Premium SMS is regulated by PhonepayPlus.
