    Question Telephone Payment

    I think telephone payment would be easier for the customers. Especially for customers who don't have a credit card and live in countries where PayPal is not available. Almost everybody has a cell phone and could simply send a SMS, or make a call to complete the payment.
    What do you think about telephone payment? Would you offer this as an alternative?

    It is a viable option. The numbers costs quite a bit of money though to maintain each month. I do not think that most hosting companies could afford that where most do seem to want a merchant account or 3PP to be set-up for free.

    We looked into a few companies that offer the numbers and the keywords. The numbers are about $1,000 a month and the keywords were about $500 a month to maintain. SMS is a very large business in the UK, getting larger in Japan and the US

    alot of cellphone providers do not allow international premium rate calls as they can be abused by scammers getting people to call a number that they don't realise is a premium rate.
