What are the typical MNO costs that can be occurred in a USSD session?

For standard-billed sessions, the end-user's mobile handset is charged directly, while for all reverse-billed clients each USSD session is charged by the specific MNO and billed based on the session length. Note that MNOs can have different session lengths and maximum duration, but they typically charge for every 20 seconds of the end-users utilization. All MNO costs incurred by reversed-billed clients will be billed directly to the clients via the MNO or passed on by Clickatell.

Please contact our Support Team for more information around specific MNO costs.
