Monetize content, goods and services by enabling customers to pay with a simple SMS.
Premium SMS is one of the simplest and most widely available payment methods, because all it takes is to send and receive an SMS message – a feature supported by every mobile phone. Customers send a text message to a premium-rated short code, after which the purchase amount is charged to their mobile phone bill.

Short codes, or short numbers, are short digit sequences (3-7 digits sequences) that are used to send and receive SMS messages. They're shorter than telephone numbers and therefore easy to remember. They're pre-approved by carriers and have a higher delivery rate. This number consists of 3-7 digits and charges a premium price to the end user per sent SMS. The purchase amount is deducted from the end users’ phone bill.
The difference is that in a Premium SMS flow users can complete payments by sending an SMS message to a short code. After that, the price amount will be charged to their mobile operator bill. In a Direct Carrier Billing flow, payments are completed over mobile internet or WiFi. The flow itself varies depending on the regulations which apply to mobile operators in the country where such payments are available.
Mobile Originated (MO) SMS is a text message which end users send from their mobile phone. For example, an MO SMS would be “DESSERT” - a keyword which a customer sends to a short code number. MO billing refers to the charge that is made when the user sends SMS message to a service provider. On the other hand, Mobile Terminated (MT) billing refers to the charge that is made when the user receives an MT SMS message from a service provider.
