    Hey guys,

    I have been researching about SMS payment, I need it for my site. But every company I come across to has a payout of 60%. That means they keep 40 % of my earned money ? Are they insane ? That means on 10 bux they will take 4 $....

    Do you guys know of a company which doesn't tax alot....

    Yah they do that, i've been using some comps like that for testing. but they work quite well if you target the teenagers. they won't have credit cards anyway. dedicated sms gateways from the operators directly cost like 2-3k at least here.. not gonna do that. SMS payment is fun to play with though, easy to create "own product" to use insted of email or zip sub.

    actually, sms operator will keep about 30% + sms billing will keep 20-40% so what you get is only ~40% of sms cost. When i was working with one affiliate site sms for users were ~5$ and my earning - 1 - 1.5$

    We do run a Mobile Affiliate Program and have of course various Premium SMS Gateways we deal with. Depending on volume, either a shared or exclusive keyword and country there will be made a deal to suit your needs.

    We get for example payed in most countries 80%. 20% Normally goes to the provider and will be set aside in case a customer can't pay his phone bill. It's very normal to get 60% on low volume..
