    Phone/Cell Phone payments?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any such module or way to accept phone/cell phone payments, we currently use WHMCS so specifically a module for that would be best, but if none for whmcs id still like to know about it! Thanks in advance!

    I do believe I did see one for Australia, But not sure I believe these are not in effect. Could be wrong here, However, I would think such services would charge you to accept payments of this source.

    yes i do know there would be a deduction per payment for the service, i think i found a place 123ticket.com looking into it, just wondering the payout how that works etc, but it would be nice to accept orders via sms / phone payments as well, make it more reachable for clients payments etc

    Seems like it'd be an open door for fraud..

    What do you mean by saying phone/cell phone payments. Do you need a software a payment gateway that is easy to use from a mobile phones or you want a payment to me made through text message. These are very different things. You might need a different merchant provider for this and honestly I doubt you would fine one that operates in the international level.

    From what I believe, He is after a service where people can pay from their mobile through a message (txt).. Payments can be done through mobiles/cells as you would be aware with web-browsers as you would do as if you were on a computer. From what I gather it could be done but I think it would be more hassle than anything.

    It sounds very unnecessary to me. Im sure customers can find time to log online and pay your bill. If they aren't paying it, I highly doubt that it is because it is not convenient - more like they don't have the funds to cover the bill.

    I don't understand why you would want to do this - if I am going to look for a hosting provider I'm certainly not going to do it on my phone and even if I did do some browsing I would make the final decision sitting in front of a computer where I could review everything and ultimately make the best decision.

    It's just like if I was looking for web hosting and somebody sent me a text that said "Reply with HOSTME For Great Web Hosting at $7.50/month" there is no way that I would even consider using such a service sight-un-seen if not simply for the fact that they sent me an unsolicited text message offering their "service".

    MikeDVB. This kind of payment, SMS and Landline is extremely appealing to the younger generation of webdesigners and developers.

    Yes, as the poster above said, This mainly appeals to the younger generation of website creators and developers. Those who don't own debit/credit cards but still want to get involved and create themselves a website.

    But webdesigners and developers are on their computers on a daily basis. Would be more a hassle for them to pick up their phone to make a payment then it would be to log on to a website when their already on their computer

    Ya well like i said it would be used for another option, for those who WOULD liek to pay that way, or can only pay that way, like as of this week i had 2 clients wishing or wanting to use sms to pay etc, ive also checked into it, and alot of ppl can easily get prepaid phones and buy time on there phones which can be used as money to send to providers for things, maybe they dont have a bank account or prefer not to use it, maybe they dont have a paypal etc, it's an additioanl option for those who would like to use it not saying id make it my primary payment gateway lol

    Don't get me wrong - I'm not an old fogie myself - I love using my iPhone to do things but I still don't see the appeal in it.

    I mean the only thing that would be nice is if you could pay via phone and have the charge appended to your phone bill - now that I could understand as being nice but other than that...

    It's my understanding that's exactly what he's after. I know the ability exists (otherwise ringtone providers wouldn't exist) but couldn't tell you how to get there.

    This probably belong in running a web hosting business though.
