Pay By Phone Bill

When you’re trying to choose the best online bingo sites, one of the things you should pay attention to is payment methods. There are a lot of different methods available these days and pay by text has risen significantly in popularity. 

Paying by text


When you see a bingo site that offers pay by SMS, it basically means you can credit your account using your mobile phone. In some rarer cases paying by phone bill or by phone means you can deposit funds into your account via your telephone landline. However, there aren’t many bingo sites which let you pay by phone bill so this is something you will need to search pretty hard for if you’d prefer that form of payment.

Pay by SMS is actually offered via various companies. All of the top mobile operators support the payments and the process itself is more of a flow payment system, rather than a company.

When you make your payment, it goes straight from you to the mobile operator and then on to the online bingo company. Funds appear instantly in your account and you don’t need to spend ages being redirected to various pages in order to make the payment.

The amount you can deposit is usually pretty low. In most cases you can make a maximum deposit of £10. SMS payment options are created with small transactions in mind. So it is ideal for those who don’t tend to spend too much on their account at any one time plus a fraud consideration needs to be made.

Do I need a mobile contract?

The great thing about pay by text is the fact that you can do it through a pay as you go plan or via your monthly contract. The only difference between the two is when the money will come out. If you’re on a pay as you go plan, the money will be taken from your existing credit. However, if you’re on a pay monthly contract, the amount will be added to your bill at the end of the month.

If you opt to pay by phone bill, it can be risky unless you are good at managing your finances. It is so easy to spend money that you don’t have, forgetting exactly how much you have spent. However, when you pay using a pay as you go phone, you cannot spend any money that you don’t already have.


Why choose this option?

There are a number of reasons why you might want to opt for the pay by text option. Firstly it is pretty quick to do. You don’t have to spend ages typing in your card details. It takes less than two minutes to make the payment and funds tend to show up instantly.

Other benefits to pay by SMS include the fact that it is secure and you never have to give your personal details to the bingo site. This means you cannot fall victim to identity fraud and your details also can’t be sold on.
