The branch specific term "Premium SMS" stands for paid text messages, where the receiver* pays for the costs. This is a very popular payment method world wide, also because of how fast and easy it is in use for the consumer.
The concept is simple: the customer first sends a text message to a shortcode (p.e. 7111). The first word ("keyword") determines what service is requested. Depending on the set tariff and type of service, one or more paid messages will be sent to the customer.
This type of service is very suitable for handling onetime payments, subscription services or for example an Text & Win promotion.
* Note: In some countries payments are made by messages that are being sent by the consumer (MO), instead of messages that are being received by them (MT).How do I use these Premium SMS options?
