Latest Version: v1.1.3

Summary

MobileBill allows you to charge your members for accessing a restricted forum, by billing them monthly via their mobile phone (The money is taken from their phone credit or added to their monthly bill). This plugin is free to install, with no time limits.

Key features of Mobilebill vBulletin SMS Plugin
  • FREE to setup & download (Less than 16Kb!)
  • Very easy to install (Only 6 Files to Upload!)
  • Configures in minutes (via the vBulletin Admin)
  • Within 10mins you can be earning revenue
  • 24/7 Support
  • Easy to use Members Area
  • Create as many campaigns as you require (for multiple forums!)
  • Access reports and stats
  • Turn your forum into a money making tool

Whats the catch? Why's it Free to setup?

Because we work like Paypal.......You can charge your forum members either 1.50, 3.00, 6.00 per week or per month and Mobilebill takes a small cut of this revenue, which means, setup is free! and no monthly fee that you pay out of your own pocket!



As you can see, YOU get the biggest cut of the payment, with the mobile phone operators taking their costs and Mobilebill taking the least amount of the revenue share. We have one of the best payout rates in the business!

How does it work?

You may have some audio, video, tutorials, photos, litterature or simply a private area of your forum that you can offer to your members as an additional bonus for them signing up as a VIP Member.

Because they will be upgraded to a VIP usergroup, you can give that usergroup extra privileges such as bigger private message capacity, different colour user titles, bigger avator/profile pictures, you could remove advertising banners just for that usergroup....

Your members then decide if they want to upgrade, so they text to our SMS Number (78889), our server then authorises and takes payment from their mobile phone. Once verified, our server sends your member a text message with a password in, they must then enter that password in the sms signup page on your forum (Supplied by us).

Our server then verify's this once more, before sending back a success request to your forum, which then in turn, upgrades their usergroup to the VIP usergroup.

Your members then have instant access to your premium content & private forum, and within minutes you have earned either 1.50, 3.00 or 6.00 from that member, and it continues to bill their mobile phone, every week or month, untill they text STOP to 78889.

We have a strict policy against scammers, and we ban such people from our network. We expect all members to adhere to strict rules and we insist on our customers displaying info on how your members can cancel at any time.

Your members are sent these instuctions via text on how to cancel when they sign up, so everything is crystal clear from the start.

When the next payment is due from your member, our server will automatically take the next payment off their mobile phone.

If they have no credit left our server will notify your forum, which it will then downgrade their usergroup back to the one it was before it was upgraded.

Its a fully automated system from start to finish. And all you've got to do, is worry about keeping the premium content up-to-date, giving them a reason to stay signed up as a VIP member.

Example of LIVE Signup Page

This page is 100% customisable, you can quickly edit the text in the vbulletin admin, or you can edit the whole template from the Templates & Styles in the admin.

Thanks for your kind comments Rickeo.

Version 1.1.2 now released.


Minor bug fix in the mobilebill settings in the admin that prevented the update of the billing frequency and billing amount.

This is now totally customisable.



Thanks
MobileBill

Waiting for polish operators...

Have you considered giving the code free to rewrite it to the countries, where you will have no service in the future? I do have my payments operator with premium SMS service, but he is not interested in pugging it into the vB.

4) Create a new private forum that only the VIP members usergroup has access to

how to do that?

http://www.justfeeds.net/sms_signup.php

1) Start a new Text Message and text the words JOIN texttojoin to 78889

is that correct? my keyword is texttojoin

It'd be very nice if this supported Canada too.. I've looked far and wide for a reverse SMS provider that supports Canada.

There is definitely a market for one, and very little competition (well.. that I can find..)

Your website talks of yearly billing in the tour - can you confirm that this has now been enabled as your last reply said it was pending still.
