The AIME Charge to Mobile Working Group is a very well attended and active working group; originally formed as the Payforit Working Group in 2010, it extended its remit after 2014 to encompass the growth and development of the whole category of “Charge to Mobile”.

The Charge to Mobile Working Group continues to be a consulting partner to the Payforit Management Group providing feedback on development of the cross operator payment scheme as part of its activities.
