Charging for traffic in the Internet is gaining importance, due to the introduction of different Quality of Service classes and the increasing access speeds of endusers. Current charging schemes are limited since they do not allow Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to charge customers of other ISPs for data that is transferred to these customers. This paper presents an architecture for reverse charging in the Internet, that does allow such payments to be made. Reverse charging enables new business scenarios for traffic flow in the Internet.
