There are a number of factors you need to consider when choosing your SMS service provider; so that you can bill your customers via their mobile phone send SMS text messages as part of your overall marketing and billing strategy effectively and in line with industry regulations.

Every country has its own mobile marketing legal compliance rules and rightly so: A mobile phone number is sacred, we carry our mobiles with us all of the time and research shows that over 90% of text messages are read within 4 minutes of being received. That’s huge. So we, as marketers, need to treat this with respect and be intelligent with our SMS marketing and billing.

As an example, Phone Pay Plus in the UK requires that premium rate services must:

  • be upfront about the service they offer and the cost
  • treat consumers fairly
  • comply with the law
  • not invade consumer privacy
  • not cause harm or unreasonable offence to consumers
  • resolve consumer complaints quickly
