30 questions to ask before purchasing a Ring Back Tone Platform - Part 2

16. Do you have Tone gifting/Recommendations?

Yes, Defne RBT has a tone gifting feature. A gift option is available on channels. The basic service flow is as follows; Once a subscriber (A party) gives a tone to another subscriber (B party), Defne RBT reserves the charge amount from A party while informing the B party with an SMS notification and expecting the B party to approve it within 24 hours. Once the B party accepts the gift, A party is charged for the reserved amount and the tone is automatically installed on B Party’s personal list. B party is charged for the renewals. Micro-charging is not applied for gifted content. Defne RBT checks the subscription status of B party before reserving the charge amount from A Party. If the B party is a home subscriber but not an RBT subscriber, Defne RBT auto provisions the B party. If the gift is not accepted by the B Party, then Defne RBT cancels the subscription on both the RBT platform and BSS systems.
