Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9634366A1] The invention relates to a parking payment system for paying of the parking fee by a telenetwork's terminal device. Characteristic to the invention is that the teleterminal device used for paying of the parking fee comprises either a mobile station signalling to the telenetwork (MCN) the user identification, preferably the A-subscriber number and the identification message of the A-subscriber and/or the A-subscriber's mobile station, forming the A-subscriber identity, or a telenetwork device capable for DTMF-signalling, by which a secret code, forming the A-subscriber identity or being a part of it, can be given to the network (PSTN, MCN) as a user identification; and that to the telenetwork (PSTN, MCN) has been switched a service transmitter (IN, API), which has or to which is connected a database (DB, SDF) and which functions as a virtual remote cash terminal and registers the parking fees activated by the users to the database's user-related registers (ASR) according to the A-subscriber identity.
