The Ideal Cash Generating Business
Pay Per call numbers were first created in 1980 for ABC during the Reagan/Carter debates. A total of over 500,000 calls were made during the debate. In 1982, NASA started an informational line for the space shuttle flights. Soon after, national companies realized the incredible opportunities in pay per call numbers.
In 1987, Telesphere created the first coast to coast, interactive pay per call numbers. This meant that anyone, anywhere could provide information regardless of the location. This laid the foundation for the pay per call business.
Today, you can come across thousands of our PayPerCall.com numbers in daily newspapers, magazines, and the Internet for 900 and 800 lines. Our lines are affordable enough for anyone to take advantage of.
