Hi,

I'm trying to find a system I can use to send / receive sms from my website where the person getting the txt pays for the service

All off the solutions I've found are based on my buying credits up front to pay for the txts


Is there anyone who does a "user pays" system?

Try RUN THR RED

This type of service costs mega bucks to get started

Charging a reciver of a txt is extremely dubious unless you do it like this imo:

1: User A sends message to your website for User B
2: Your website/service sends message to User B via txt
3: You get charged for sending the txt, then you add the charge to User B's account for delivering web 2 txt.

It would be easier  to setup a system when a user purchases a set amount of credit, everytime a txt is sent out you deduct that from their balance.

I'd much rather do it this way, but a client is keen on the user pays system

I'm 99% sure that the costs are going to be too prohibitive for them to go ahead with it though
