Do txtNation provide Direct Carrier Billing in the Norwegian Market?
Yes. txtNation provide Direct Operator Payments (mPayment) across all Mobile Networks in Norway.
We support direct billing across the main mPayment Norway products:
Enables the merchant to charge the customer when using mobile phone apps or web pages. Suited for services where the customer already is identified, for example services ordered in mobile phone apps like parking or public transport tickets or online content services with log-in to merchant domain like classified ads.
Through direct charge you register your mobile once, by paying through a PIN verification flow. After that the customer has 'Single-Click' experience.
Service providers can make a deeper integration with their customer profiles so that when a user logs into a service their mobile number is active on mPayments to pay through a 'Single-Click'.
Rules for Direct Charge using mPayment:
- The charge request is based upon the MSISDN of the End User.
- This requires the Merchant to have identified the MSISDN of the End User in a secure way before sending a charge request, maximum one month in advance.
- This can be done through sending the End User an SMS with a password that she registers in the Merchant web page, or through look up of the terminal IP address or alias, giving the terminal MSISDN.
