After the demise of PayForIt, Three UK has taken the opportunity to give their Charge to Mobile service a refresh.
What is Three Pay?
Three Pay is our own take on charge to mobile/carrier billing:
Three Pay lets you buy stuff like games, apps, and digital content on platforms such as Google Play, Epic Games, Microsoft, Spotify, and loads more. The cost is then added to your monthly phone bill or deducted from your Pay As You Go balance. Nothing to remember, nothing to store. Just sit back and enjoy.
Check out their video to learn more:
What can you use Three Pay for?
Digital services and goods such as parking, charity donations, online games services, quizzes, competitions, music or TV subscriptions or adding credit to an online gambling service.
You can also pay for apps and some subscriptions from Google Play Store and Huawei App Store. Apple app store coming soon.

Enarpee have written an engaging article on what opportunities could be available for the services industry after Brexit;
“The UK could be headed towards a more integrated, EU-centric trade deal.
It’s the safe bet to some, but to those who see the bigger picture, a potentially huge loss for the services industry here in the UK, of which we form a very small part. Free trade agreements (FTAs) could open up huge new markets and economic potential for the UK and aren’t be something to be feared, and here’s why:” Brexit and the Services industry October 2018 Enarpee
Today, Fonix announced the launch of CRM Automation: a set of customer engagement automation tools for its clients to deliver mobile interactive services.
Some of the UK’s largest radio and TV broadcasters work with Fonix to deliver mobile interactive services to their audiences, with messaging used as highly effective channel for generating audience engagement.
Fonix’s platform enables its clients to configure predefined campaign start and end times, cost per mobile interaction and more. Now, Fonix has added a set of new functionalities to enable broadcasters to provide a more tailored experience for audiences when creating marketing communications, to maximise engagement and effectiveness for those campaigns.
Clients will be able to schedule automated responses at predefined times for users based on their previous interactions with a campaign, meaning that clients will be able to target individuals uniquely with relevant message content in a timely manner and within sociable hours driving both optimal experience for users and engagement for the brands.
CEO of Fonix, Rob Weisz commented: “This is such an exciting development for Fonix product suite. CRM Automation will allow for more targeted campaigns, providing those that love engaging with services an experience that is focussed upon their interaction habits. It will drive engagement and crucially, help our clients to avoid sending unwanted messages to their audiences.
“The functionality has a strong focus upon upholding a fantastic consumer experience, which is so important to Fonix and those that we work with. We’re excited to see the impact that this has upon our clients and to hear about the results that this has for their consumers!”
