Why choose Phone Bill payment?

Before we dive into the how-to, let’s quickly talk about why paying with your phone bill is a fantastic option. Firstly, it’s super convenient. Most of us have smartphones and the process is so easy. And secondly, you don’t need to worry about sharing your financial and personal details online, all you need is your mobile phone number.

What you should know before purchasing with phone bill?

Before we dig into the platforms that allow you to buy Steam Gift Cards with phone bill, there are somethings you need to know before opting for this payment method.

  1. Purchasing Steam Cards by SMS or Phone Bill may incur additional costs depending on your mobile operator and payment provider. It is important to check the charges before you start the payment process, as you will not be reimbursed for the amount you spend if you stop in the middle.

  2. SMS and Phone Bill payments take longer to process than other more traditional methods.

  3. Your mobile phone operator may not allow you to pay by SMS or Phone Bill. You will have to choose another payment method or change your mobile plan.

How does SMS payment work?

SMS micropayment is when you buy a product or service from a merchant by sending one or more messages from your mobile phone. The merchant or payment provider then provides you with a 5-digit number. To complete the transaction, you need to send an SMS (sometimes with a keyword) to this specific 5-digit number. Finally, you must pay the cost of sending or receiving one or more “premium” messages. Only after this will you receive confirmation of payment. The SMS micropayment is then visible on your phone bill and you will be charged according to your usual payment method (e.g. direct debit).

It includes:

  • The price of sending a standard SMS (unless it is included in your phone package).

  • The amount of the purchase and the merchant’s service fee.

  • The surcharge for the payment service used (e.g. Onebip, DaoPay, Doku).
