How does it work?

Direct Carrier Billing

Direct Carrier Billing is a one-click payment method. With this, customers can pay for digital services or subscriptions through their phone bill. Via the payment button in the online environment, the user will reach a new page with information about the transaction. After paying for the products or services, like web or in-app content, the user is granted access. Via the telecom provider, CM will disburse the payment to you.

Premium SMS

It is really quite simple. The end user sends an SMS with a keyword (for example 'DONATE') to a short code such as 3669. He then receives a confirmation SMS for which he pays a small amount (like €1,50) which is billed via his phone bill. Your customer's telecom provider will pay a part of this to CM, after which CM will make a payment to you. Of course, you can use your own short codes and keywords. Premium SMS is available for single purchases and subscriptions.
