Hey
I’m about to make a mobile ticket system that should look like the following (see picture):



The user pays for a ticket through SMS or similar (maybe android mobile application), and we are looking if there is a functional paying system (on the drawing the payment system) we can purchase somewhere? Our first though is an SMS payment through the phone bill, but if there other system that is just as simple as SMS payment just tell me.

Thanks
Martin Trædholm

Various options are available for implementing payments on Android. There's carrier billing, although I'm not under the impression that it's making inroads, but if it already covers a country you need covered might be a viable option.

PayPal also has an Android SDK.

There's also in-app billing if the app is distributed through the Google Play store (with a sizable chunk of the payment going to Google).

Or you could integrate with more traditional payment providers like Adyen or Wirecard through their API.

It's hard to say from your description which of these might be the best fit.

Edit: It seems carrier billing is still alive, and slowly being expanded: http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/06/14/google-play-carrier-billing-rolling-out-for-3-in-hong-kong-sweden-ireland-and-wind-italy/

@Ulf

Thank you for the reply.

A person request a resource e.g. some water from a tube for x min. We want a system that the user from a mobile phone can purchase that resource through a ticket system. We are planning of making a server where the user can send in a request for a ticket. The question is how the paying system shall be built, there is mainly 2 ways to go for android/ios app solution or make a SMS system. Does any know if there a customize SMS ticket system available out there? My task is to investigating witch solutions there is on the marked and then to take the decision. Our main thing is that it shall be easy for user.

Hope that gave an overview over the problem and what I'm asking for.
