An easy mobile payment solution

Wouldn’t it be great if a consumer could visit your website (or potentially your mobile website), decide to purchase a particular product or service and then pay for it there and then using their mobile phone?

Well thanks to a new simple solution by ImpulsePay, now you can.  ImpulsePay’s solution works on any UK handset and effectively collects payment via the consumer’s available PAYG credit or by billing against the mobile phone bill.  Simple, quick and effective.

    • It may well be the same thing but I’m not 100% sure. ImpulsePay works by sending a PIN code via SMS to your mobile phone which you then have to input online for authentication, so in effect this is a form of SMS billing. What I don’t know is whether it shares the same technology platform as Open Market’s SMS billing solution. Thanks for sharing their link though.

  1. Yes – it’s SMS billing. This was touted around to media companies a few years back as “micro-payments”.

    Go to page – want to read a “premium article”. Text code in – get SMS back with PIN. Enter PIN – read article. From what I understand it didn’t take off because it was “too hard” to integrate it into the sort of CMS driven flat sites that most mags/papers used at the time.
