Mobile Billing Product

By mBlox

SMS Billing, or Premium SMS (PSMS) as it is often known, is the most widely used mobile payment and mobile billing mechanism in use today. Its growth and market acceptance continue with strong growth, as more and more consumers purchase content and services via their mobile phones.

Premium SMS Billing is application-to-person (A2P) technology used by businesses that need to bill their consumers using the mobile channel. It works like a standard text message, "wrapped" in an invoice, which either gets billed to a consumer's monthly mobile phone bill or is deducted from the consumer's pre-pay account.

The benefits of premium SMS for billing

mBlox's Premium SMS Billing service lets you take advantage of the growing trend in mobile billing, quickly generating revenue by selling a range of content and mobile services to consumers. PSMS offers many benefits as a mobile billing mechanism:

  • Convenience, anonymity, and perceived risk reduction, making it an attractive option to consumers
  • A perfect mechanism for consumers, simplifying one-off purchasing and ordering short-term or bulk subscription-based mobile services
  • Fast revenue generation, resulting in the availability of funds to reinvest in your business
  • Access to consumers who do not maintain credit cards
