Activate Direct Operator (Carrier) Billing

Direct operator (carrier) billing is safe and reliable mobile payment model used by consumers to purchase digital and mobile content using their mobile phone. It is a simple and user-friendly payment solution since there is no registration, no intermediary steps, no keywords or short numbers involved.

One of the biggest advantages of direct operator billing for content providers is the high billing flexibility, which means you can use this mobile payment channel to sell high value items. Content providers can benefit by knowing upfront if the consumer has enough funds to pay for the good. This is provided through billing confirmation before the delivery of the good which creates better revenue predictability.

Various providers even support higher payout rates with direct operator billing making it a preferred mobile payment service. Transaction costs are reduced to a minimum since there are no additional costs involved in this payment process.
