It’s a low investment and high return business model – get your phone line from PayPerCall and start answering the phone.
900 Numbers were Terminated in 2012
You can no longer get a 900 number. In December 2012, the billing for 900 number pay per call services in the U.S. was terminated. These numbers had been extremely popular throughout the 1990s, and everybody from TV stars like Hulk Hogan to companies like Microsoft used them. People were actually able to listen to astronauts on a space shuttle by calling a 900 number.
So, what happened? First, we experienced the rise of mobile. U.S. mobile carriers never allowed calls to these numbers (for some reason). The 900 number industry became over-regulated and abused by customers who found out that first-time callers could get reimbursed for their calls. There were also many scams and stigma towards people who pay for these services with their credit cards. Add the widespread use of the Internet that allowed people to search for free information, and you get the idea of why the industry got quieter.

All systems are not created equal, we’ve spent millions perfecting ours for your benefit. When it comes to charging for calls via an 800 number, PayPerCall.com has pioneered the space and we have been making advances every year that makes our system even more profitable for our clients. We allow our clients to choose how they will charge (per minute or per call) as well as how much they will charge. When the caller dials your number, they reach your branded phone line that prompts them to enter their payment information securely. Once our automated system validates the information, they get transferred to you. Note that you can choose your calls to be redirected to any landline or mobile phone number, allowing you to work remotely.
Powerful Features Built in to Make you More Money
Our powerful billing system also comes with the industry leading Card Memory feature, which is a significant advantage to our 800 numbers. This makes it simple for your repeat callers to keep calling back. Your callers will have the option to extend the call before their time runs out. Once a caller’s debit or credit card is approved, their information is encrypted, stored, and linked with the caller’s phone number. Next time they call, the system will only prompt them to enter the last 4 digits of their stored card. This system speeds up the entire process, making it easy and quick for callers to call for your services.
Why Provide Free Information, When You Can Charge for It?
The reason why PayPerCall is still standing strong as a pay per call phone line provider is that many people out there still want to pay for professional advice or consultation. For example, if you need legal advice, looking around the Internet will not help if your legal problems are specific and need to be examined by someone with experience and expertise.
