Subscribing Subscription Methods Credit Card Cash Text Message PayPal Bank Transfer

You can pay for a single month's subscription credit via text message - the cost of the subscription will be added to your phone bill.

Our PayBySMS service provides a PIN number via a premium-rate text message, which you can redeem for a month's subscription credit on our website. The cost will vary depending on your country. This is not a recurring subscription - we'll charge you only once, for a single month's membership, and you'll need to follow the same steps next month if you'd like to continue your subscription. (You should always go through our website, to make sure you have the right phone number.)

You'll need to wait 15 minutes before redeeming your PIN on our website, and you can add PayBySMS subscription credit to up to three accounts at the same time. (If you add a fourth by mistake, you will be charged but will be unable to make use of the PIN.)

Please make sure that your network provider allows premium rate text messages, that - if you are a pre-pay customer - you have enough credit on your phone to cover the cost of the PIN, that your inbox has enough space for two SMS text messages and that you have a good mobile phone signal.

If you have any problems redeeming your PIN, please contact billing support.
