The Future of Mobile Transactions: Direct Carrier Billing

Direct Carrier Billing (DCB), also known as Mobile Pay or Mobile Content Billing, is a online mobile payment method. This technology allows the purchase of digital services in applications and websites for mobile devices, charged in the mobile monthly invoice or automatically deducted from the mobile balance.

DCB was originally created as a convenient way to buy ringtones and wallpapers, where the cost was added to the user’s monthly bill or directly deducted from the phone balance. Direct Carrier Billing has grown significantly over the past decade, making it the most convenient and secure payment method for a wide range of digital goods and services. Its users are growing year after year and the number is expected to double over the next 5 years.

This mobile payment solution, adapted to new habits of the consumer, is a payment method that works with one-time and/or subscription transactions, and it’s available to customers with prepaid or postpaid services. Consumers can then pay for digital goods or services through their mobile invoice. By providing a faster shopping experience, the conversion rate increases and satisfies the customers as their experience remains uninterrupted.
