O2 are changing their payment mechanism to Direct 2 Bill (D2B). On May 14th they will switch off Premium SMS and immediately switch on direct operator billing through Direct 2 Bill. This will not result in any period of outage.
Direct 2 Bill offers merchants many benefits over Premium SMS, including:
- Far greater flexibility in price points, charge any amount from 1 pence to £30
- Increased payout rates giving you a higher percentage of each transaction
- Higher conversion rates, it’s quicker and easier for customers to pay
As the payment mechanism takes place in the background your customers will only notice a faster response time when paying.
O2 business users or customers connecting via MVNOs are unable to pay via Direct 2 Bill, these customers will automatically be offered alternate payment methods by Bango such as Credit Card.
