Please Note: This service is currently open to the UK mobile phone networks, we will be introducing the rest of the world very soon.

Version
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.

Well this does sound fantastic. However I live in Australia.

Questions:
Can I sign up still if I live in Australia?
How will I receive my payments?
How often can I receive payments?
Is there a waiting period before I can receive my payments?
If I have it set up to charge the member $6. Does that mean I basically only get $3 in return?
How long until other countries can start using this sms service?
Will you make it possible for members to be able to pay more then $6?


Thanks.

The vBulletin Admins temporary suspended the thread while they had a meeting about whether to allow this mod (Because of the commerical nature of it). After several days discussion, they agreed to allow it on the basis of us stating that the service is free to setup, but we take a cut from the transactions, just like paypal do.

There is zero security issue and it is completely secure for your forum.

Other amounts will be enabled in the next few days.

Can this be made yearly ?
Yes, we will enable this in the next few days.

Questions:
Can I sign up still if I live in Australia?
Yes you can still signup no matter what country you're from, just for the time being, you can only bill customers from the UK.

How will I receive my payments?
Via Paypal for now. Direct bank payments will follow later this year.

How often can I receive payments?
Every 30 days.
Billing Example:
january.....earn revenue
february....earn revenue
march.......earn revenue
april..........recieve januarys payment
may..........recieve februarys payment
june..........recieve marchs payment
july...........recieve aprils payment


Is there a waiting period before I can receive my payments?
The mobile phone operators first pay out 90 days from the end of the month, this is the same for ALL reverse SMS companies out there. After the initial 90 days, you are paid every 30 days. (See above).

If I have it set up to charge the member $6. Does that mean I basically only get $3 in return?
Yes. Is it not us who sets the charges, it is the Mobile Phone companies, such as orange, o2, Virgin, T-Mobile.

How long until other countries can start using this sms service?
Within the next few months.

Will you make it possible for members to be able to pay more then $6?
Per transaction, we currently offer £1.50 ($3), with £3 ($6) and £6 ($12) coming very soon.

The billing periods are either weekly or monthly (Daily and Yearly coming soon)

Billing Examples:
£1.50 ($3) per week
£1.50 ($3) per month
£3 ($6) per week
£3 ($6) per month
£6 ($12) per week
£6 ($12) per month



Any more questions, please ask away...

Hi

Just installed this and its all looking good.

The 1 problem is i cant change the subscription price. It is stuck at £1.50 and i need it at £6.

Any ideas why this could be?


And if i may add a suggestion - It would be useful to be able to offer different degrees of membership.

Ie. say have the option for a weeks membership, a months membership, a years membership and lifetime membership or something.

Just a suggestion.


Edit - Sorry didnt read the second post properly, It looks like some of these feature will be featured anyway.
