Premium SMS, Mobile Services
Premium SMS are messages that cost a certain tariff per message is coupled to a service. The costs of this message are for the customer ordering the service. The customer needs to send an SMS message to a shortcode e.g. 60070. There are two ways how these cost can be billed to the customer: through sending a message to the shortcode (MO = Mobile Originated) or receiving a message (MT = Mobile Terminated) that the customer receives after sending a message to the shortcode.
The tariffs that can be linked to the use of shortcodes and the use of either or both MO and MT billing differ per country.
