- Payment and Scope of Services
In order to make a payment, we provide our users a top-up payment system which is integrated with a third-party payment provider.
Our top-up payment system works as with pay-as-you-go system; whereby you can add at your discretion the desired amount of credit to your account by using your credit card.
We would like to point out that our verification service can be used by your users in various ways:
If you prefer to use VerifyKit via WhatsApp for verification purposes, depending on your preference, you may choose either (i) our standard service via VerifyKit WhatsApp Business account or (ii) purchasing of additional service of WhatsApp Business Account via VerifyKit with a Special WhatsApp Number to be allocated for you.
In respect of the WhatsApp verifications conducted with our VerifyKit standard service, mobile phone number of your users are being verified via the VerifyKit WhatsApp Business Account. In contrast, in respect of WhatsApp Business Account in the name of your brand purchased through VerifyKit, verifications are made via a Special WhatsApp Number exclusively allocated to your brand.
Each verification transaction is charged pursuant to the fee policy determined by WhatsApp LLC for each country. In case you use a Special WhatsApp Number, server service fee shall also apply on the basis of your monthly verification amount, in addition to the fees to be applied per each verification.
Server service fee varies in accordance with the WhatsApp verification amount and we will charge you an additional server fee for every 100.000 verification. If you wish to verify via SMS instead of using WhatsApp, we will charge you per SMS for each verification. SMS fees may vary depending on your location, SMS receiving country and operator.
In addition to the above verification method, we also have the following verification services for your users to use:
WhatsApp OTP: Your users will be able to complete the verification process by entering the one-time code they will receive via WhatsApp in the relevant step on the VerifyKit screen.
Verify by SMS: Your users will be able to complete the verification process by entering the one-time code they will receive via SMS in the relevant step on the VerifyKit screen.
Inbound SMS: Your users will be able to verify their numbers by sending the one-time code generated by VerifyKit to their VerifyKit number via SMS. In this method, a message will be sent by your users. For this reason, your users may be charged according to their own tariff.
Flashcall: Your Android users who give call permission will be able to complete the number verification process by receiving a short call for a few seconds. We would like to point out that in this method, the user's phone will not ring and a counter will be completed on the VerifyKit screen during the call phase.
Outbound Call: VerifyKit will drop a call to your Android and iOS users from a number that belongs to it. Your users will complete the verification process by entering the caller's number or a few digits of that number on the screen. We would like to point out that in this method, a call occurs so short that the user cannot answer the phone. Even if your user picks up the phone, the call will end immediately. Although the call will be terminated immediately if the users pick up the phone, your users may be billed for the said short call.
Verification services offered (for example, our Flashcall and Outbound Call and Verify by SMS and Inbound SMS services) are performed by third party service and intermediary service providers in domestic and abroad region.
We would like to point out that our Flashcall, Outbound Call and Inbound SMS prices may vary depending on the country and operator, as is the case with Verify by SMS and WhatsApp verification.
