Mastering SMS Payments: Your Comprehensive Guide to Secure and Convenient Transactions with SOTpay

The Ultimate Guide to SMS Payments

What Are SMS Payments and How Do They Work?

SMS payments, also known as pay-by-text, offer a seamless way for customers to settle bills for goods or services through a simple text message. This innovative mobile payment solution sends a text to the customer containing a secure payment link. Upon receiving the text, the customer can tap the link to launch it in a web browser and complete the transaction with their preferred payment method—be it a debit or credit card, Google Pay, Apple Pay, or even their banking app. The process is further secured with biometric authentication, ensuring a swift and safe transaction.

How to Make Payments via SMS

To pay by SMS, follow these simple steps:

  • The merchant will provide a payment request link or a short code specific for the payment.
  • You open the link in your web browser and choose a preferred payment option.
  • The cost of the purchase is added to your chosen account.

  • Is SMS Payment Free? What Are the Charges?

    While merchants may incur a cost for sending an SMS, whether you, as a customer, face charges for accessing the internet to make a payment depends on your mobile plan.
