In this iteration, we have made 199 changes to our coverage and pricing.
Of these changes, 142 relate to price reductions and 57 relate to price increases. What is most interesting about all of these changes though is that the reductions are in areas where we drive lots of traffic (e.g. France, Singapore), whilst the increases are in mostly in areas where are traffic levels are very low.
This means that most of you will benefit from the reductions and very few, if any, will be impacted by the increases.
We’ve also added 17 new destinations to our coverage. These are Congo – Republic of the, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Eritrea, Korea (North), Libya, Micronesia, Montserrat, Nauru, Norfolk Island, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Samoa, Sao Tome and Principe, Solomon Islands & Timor-Leste.
Our coverage & pricing pages and CSV downloads have automatically been updated. But if you’d like to study the changes, you can do so through this colour-coded MS Excel file which we will soon replace with dynamic charts that show the pricing history for each destination.
Please note that, if you were amongst the customers receiving rebates for payments made with Moneybookers and money transfers, these are no longer being given. So, despite the overall cost of messaging being reduced, the credit card handling charge is now being accepted on our side within the price per SMS.
We thank you for your ongoing business and invite you to give us any feedback that will help us improve our service to you.
