High cost slows down SMS payment

Belgian consumers are still sceptic about mobile payment. 
According to Atos Worldline this is because merchants are not promoting the technology enough. 
More merchants should accept this payment method and should announce this to their customers.  But for this, the cost for the merchants should be lowered. A SMS payment can cost up to 60 cent, while the merchant only pays 6 cent for a Bancontact/MisterCash payment.   For the moment, payment by SMS is used for specific cases, such as home delivery.
