Below I will show you how to add the MoShare button to WordPress, Blogger and Tumblr blogs.First take a look at the videos below for more on How It Works and Information for publishers.

What Is MoShare

Moshare For Publishers

How Much Do MoShare Texts Cost

I have had a number of Emails and comments asking about the price of using this service.So I contacted their support and recieved a fairly conclusive reply :

“..To answer your question about costs/pricing…

We do not charge anything for the messages that are sent out. The only costs users will incur are their normal carrier text messaging and/or data charges.

So, if you have an unlimited messaging plan, you will incur no additional charges. If you have a bucket of messages, i.e. 250 messages/month, then the messages will be subtracted from that bucket. For those that have no messaging plan, their carrier’s a la carte messaging pricing will be charged, which is typically about 20-25 cents/message.

Data charges will be incurred if someone clicks a link and visits a website from their phone. Again, the pricing will depend on the person’s phone account and follow the same pattern as the messaging plans, no additional cost for those with unlimited data plans, etc…”

  6. Ahh, who exactly pays for these text messages? Or do my friends get charged to receive the message? Here in Ireland, anyway, the sender usually pays, though there are some schemes that charge the receiver too.





  7. I have looked into this Mary and their FAQ doesn’t really answer th question only to say Text and Data charges apply.I presume this means you are charged at your local rates.

    I sent a ticket to their support to find out more, I will let you know what they say.
