Direct Carrier Billing is most commonly used for billing in the entertainment industry (for content such as online games and streaming services and OTT platforms with on-demand content), but it is also used in e-commerce for physical goods, buying tickets, etc. If you are interested in a particular market, you can see our Country Conditions section for more information.
Carrier billing is accepted by the most popular online app stores (e.g. Google Play) and digital merchants, social networks, and many other content providers offering single or recurring payment models.
Depending on the type of content offered, you can activate two types of carrier billing: mobile content or standard (web) content. When mobile content is offered, the user confirmation is completed using a disclaimer. This model is known as Mobile Internet Billing. The standard (web) content model uses PIN confirmation to authenticate the purchase, which is called Web Billing.
Our technical team can guide you through the DCB integration via API. Alternatively, it can also be implemented using our SDK Payment Widget for merchants with online or in-app stores.
