OBS Online Billing

OBS; Online Billing in South Africa across all 3 of the largest MNO's.

Online Billing Services (OBS) is a direct billing service provided by aggregators on whose behalf the mobile network bills and collects payment for content services from the South African mobile subscriber. Originally provided by Vodacom, this service is now available across other networks.

Through this Direct Operator Billing platform, users can pay for digital services in just a few seconds. With 'Silent Billing' you can enable subscription billing with no requirement for MT billing messages.

Main Features of OBS:

  • Charge flexible rates for services provided.
  • Change the charge of your content easily.
  • Charge for subscriptions and ad-hoc services.
  • Bill up to R50.00.

All South African networks, MTN, Cell-C and Vodacom have MSISDN Forwarding, using a network hosted payment page to support this.

If the mobile subscriber is on WiFi they simply have to enter their mobile number, receive a PIN and redeem it to be billed.

For mobile subscribers that are on a mobile data connection, then they simply have to click a payment button to pay! (OBS; Online Billing via a hosted network payment page).

OBS enables quick Direct Billing, resolving the end user's mobile number to bill by sending a debit request back into the mobile networks platform.

OBS is available via the txtNation API.

If you are looking for a non-technical option, we offer JunglePay, our plug-and-pay option.
