Mobile Payments

Carrier billing allows app developers to charge for digital content by adding the cost of the purchase to the consumer’s phone bill.

GlobalCharge’s carrier billing solutions address the biggest challenges app developers face today, namely: how to make purchasing on mobile easy enough so that people will buy their app and in-app content and how to enable users to pay for content in markets where many do not have credit cards.
