Premium SMS is based on an inbound SMS sent to a short, 5-digit number. SMS entries generate an income as SMS cost to sender is charged at a premium rate (from R1 up to R30). In response to an inbound SMS a number of optional functions can be performed automatically including a return SMS, data retrieval from a spreadsheet or integrated system (which is then sent back to the requester), a remote database update and a response email with an attachment.
All SMS entry reports are sent to your email address on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and you may choose to receive them via email as they come in. Entries can also be tracked with the AmiCell® SMS Direct website.
The first month’s payout occurs after 90 days, thereafter monthly. In the first week of the 4th month you will receive a statement with the amount payable to which you respond with an invoice and your banking details. Prompt payment is then made by AmiCell® SMS.
