Google has been working endlessly in other to make it easier for customers to purchase digital content. Now Google has rolled out carrier billing to Airtel and Vodafone customers in India.
This is big because many mobile users in India aren’t comfortable using credit cards: Less than 30 million of them are in use nationwide.
The company tested the waters with Idea Subscribers last year, and now Airtel and Vodafone subscribers can buy apps, games, movies, and ebooks on the Play Store and bill it to their prepaid or postpaid accounts.
How To Use
Paying through carrier billing is very easy and not complicated.
> Select an app or game you want to purchase,
> choose payment methods, and
> tap the carrier option.
If your number is set up for mobile payments, you will be able to buy content and charge it to your monthly bill if you're a postpaid user, or use the talktime balance if you're on a prepaid account.
I hope this feature would be completely rolled out very soon.
