Earlier we talked a lot about GSM termination business, how to make money there, what will be your profit, etc.
Let’s review how lucrative could be SMS termination in Indonesia.
Today we want to talk about another business opportunity in this direction, namely the SMS termination. SMS termination is the delivery of international SMS messages, as well as SMS messages from the Internet, through local SIM cards of mobile operators.
The principle is the same as for voice traffic termination(GSM termination). That is, we assume, a person from the USA wants to write a text message to Indonesia. He dials the text of the SMS, dials the number of his friend from Indonesia and presses the button “send”. After that, his SMS gets to the US mobile operator, whose SIM card it uses. And then the USA mobile operator chooses the route by which it will be able to deliver SMS to Indonesia.
This route should have stability, high quality, and should also be inexpensive. Therefore, it is easiest to deliver such SMS via the Internet network, with the help of transit operators (carriers). The mediator receives for each such SMS about $ 0.003. And the mediator must also choose a further route for the delivery of SMS to the final subscriber in Indonesia. And the most profitable and high-quality route is the system of fuel and lubricants terminators (consisting of fuel and lubricant gateways and sim-boxes). That is, the transit company sends this SMS to the fuel and lubrication system of the terminator, and pays him $ 0.0018 for each SMS. And further, this GSM terminator’s system delivers this SMS to the final subscriber, and such SMS is very cheap, according to the tariff of the mobile operator for local SMS.
Average in Indonesia from minimum system you will earn around 80$ per day, its good income for start up, is it?
By the same principle, mass mailings from various Internet services work: Facebook, Instagram, online banking, online shopping and much more. Every day, these services make millions of mailings to subscribers. Therefore, the more SIM cards have a GSM terminator and the more simultaneous SMS its system can miss, the higher the profit.
Another advantage of SMS termination is that mobile operators do not block SIM cards as intensively as they do in GSM termination.
