Hi, does anyone know how these work? I work for the Wellington Asthma Society and am looking at setting up a fundraiser based around txt donations i.e TXT GASPING to 9876 to donate $3.
From what I have been able to find so far the costs are very high due to there been a middleman between the provider (Vodafone, Telecom, Telstraclear, and NZ Comms) and the Charity.
I am guessing that the middlemen are using software to sort the txts out and get the $$. I am wondering if it is possible to get the software.

The software by its self is no good. This will not set up routing/billing for a short code. There is alot more to it just dont even try bypassing the correct path. Contact run the red.

johnr: Contact run the red.

Good luck.

Was trying to get in touch with them about six months ago - multiple phone calls, emails, calls to staff (?!?) on mobile.  Never received any information back.

If you do get through, ask them to respond to my queries please.
