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..."
