Get paid to call. The 0800 Pro way.
Calling freephone numbers used to cost a lot of money when called from a mobile. The rules changed however. Now those calls are free.
But why settle for a free call. Why not get paid for it?
The 0800 Pro from Cistec will pay you for calling freephone numbers. All you have to do is use some of those minutes you already pay a *monthly fee for.
How does it work and what do I need?
Its not as tricky as it sounds. If youre paying the likes of Vodafone, EE, Virgin etc a monthly fee for say, 600 minutes, youre probably left with a few of those minutes at the end of the month.
So with that in mind, the 0800 Pro will use those minutes to connect you to an 03 number which in turn then calls the freephone number. The cost to call the 03 number will come from your network minutes (or charged at local rate cost if you have no minutes left) and then the 03 to the 0800 part of the call makes you money at around 0.4 pence per minute.
There are restrictions in place to avoid numerous or lengthy calls in a 24hr period. This is to protect you from using up your network minutes and to protect us in case the companies you are calling see too many long or numerous calls and act incorrectly.
In order for all of this to work youll be required to register for a Cistec account and be logged into it when making calls. Your account will then be credited with any earnings.
The app will show you what you have earned and give you the option to withdraw once a minimum threshold of £5 has been met.
*PAYG users will not benefit from using this app. Please check our PAYG app on our website or in the appropriate market.
Points to note:
1. Calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers will be made using an 03 number to connect your call. Calls to 03 numbers cost no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number and count towards any inclusive minutes in the same way as 01 and 02 calls.
2. Call credit is earned by making calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers at the rate of 0.4p per minute. This credit will be shown in your account and can be withdrawn when £5 has been reached.
3. Payments will be made within 30 days of request and will be made to a registered PayPal address primarily. If you do not have a PayPal account you will be asked to supply a contact telephone number for one of our team to contact you. Please have payment details handy for when we call.
