New Zealand: Mobile Billing & Mobile Messaging

New Zealand Premium SMS

Summary

New Zealand has more than 4 million subscribers and several main networks. txtNation has partnered with Vodafone, EcoNet Wireless, Telecom Mobile, TelstraClear, Boost (Walker Wireless) and 2degrees to bring our services to virtually all New Zealanders.

Connectivity

We provide a wide range of robust mobile services around the world. You can find more about what we offer in New Zealand below. We are continually improving our services and you should contact us so that we can advise you about the most appropriate solutions available in New Zealand.

Premium MO SMS

Premium "mobile originated" SMS messaging is available in New Zealand. This is a profitable way to generate revenue by receiving a message from the consumer's mobile handset. We can advise you on all your options for billing in New Zealand.

VSIM/Longcode

We offer Long Codes and or Virtual SIMs in New Zealand, which is more international than Short Codes. This allows you to receive messages from consumers around the world from a New Zealand-based telephone number. You cannot use a Virtual SIM to bill consumers. Premium services require a Short Code.

JunglePay

txtNation allows you to build a fully customised mobile billing service. If you require a mobile billing solution without the need for development, try our ready-made JunglePay widget, which you can create in just minutes.

Compliance matters

Wherever you operate mobile services, you must obey local telecommunication regulations. We can advise you on any aspect of your mobile campaign or billing service. Regulators publish guidelines that must be fully understood before you can use our platform. Operating a mobile service in one country may be very different to running one elsewhere.

This page contains some basic compliance information that may be of use to anyone wishing to run a service in New Zealand. However, you should always consult with your account manager or our support team before you launch to obtain more comprehensive guidance.

This is to protect us, your company, and all the consumers in New Zealand, where they expect a high quality service. Let us support you to get this right.

Regulator

The national regulator for premium mobile telecommunications in New Zealand is Commerce Commission of New Zealand (ComCom) . They have a code of conduct which governs what you can and cannot do with mobile services in that region. If you have any questions about these requirements, you can contact us at any time for further advice.

Taking care of your customers

Your customers expect a high-quality service, as demanded by the regulator in New Zealand. We are committed to helping you deliver a clear, compliant campaign. We can provide support to your customers for a very competitive monthly fee under one of our industry-leading support packages.

Permitted content

What you can send to customers varies across the world. In New Zealand, the regulator permits only certain types of content. These include:

  • Virtual Gambling (Virtual credit)
