    I was wondering, does anyone know how these offers work? Do they have to contact cell providers directly to be able to bill to them, does it go through a third party, or...?

    Thanks

    This is known as "Premium SMS". Bing/google it and you will find a dozen companies that do this for you. Carriers take 30-50% and the gateway company takes another 5-10%. Generally your product needs to be somewhat related to text messaging, since they all work on the concept that a SMS is sent for which the customer pays, e.g. Premium SMS.

    Thanks, checked them out though and it seems the payout is held for quite a while. Well I say 60-90 days on GoLive. Anyone know something that pays out quicker, and is a good overall company?

    Thanks

    @adrien23, the carriers take at least 60 days to pay so the third parties are usually 60-120 days. I've never seen faster. If you go to LEC (landline) billing, the payments are even slower.

    And horation is right. 60 days for carriers, however, if you do big biz with them they are reluctant to "cut" this, so maybe you could work out a deal.
