With Direct Carrier Billing (DCB), Huawei users no longer have to worry about running out of points, lives or power-ups when playing their favourite games like Gardenscapes, Lords Mobile or Guns of Glory. This is because users can now make any in-app purchases in HUAWEI AppGallery using their MTN airtime if they are a pre-paid MTN customer, or add purchases to their monthly bill if they are an MTN contract customer – limited to R500 per transaction. In addition, device users can also enjoy uninterrupted streaming of blockbuster movies such as award-winning Bad Boys For Life, and music from artists like Sjava and Holly Rey on their devices, paying for affordable subscription packages in the same way.
Huawei’s DCB offering has many benefits for users, which will help them improve and enhance their overall device experiences. And, all of this can be done with an assurance of absolute safety and security.
The billing service, which Huawei users can currently only access if they are on the MTN network, offers the following benefits:
- Ease in making a transaction: DCB requires users to only enter their phone number to make a payment, making it more convenient and safer.
- Hassle-free customer experience: Operator billing is convenient. There is no need to sign up for any additional accounts or fill out any forms. Payments are completed in a matter of seconds and provide the best checkout experience on mobile devices, where filling out forms is time consuming.
- User credentials are safe and protected: Making payments via your mobile operator billing is secure. No personal data is transmitted during the payment process so there is no need to worry about identity theft. Direct carrier billing always requires the user to confirm the payment on a physical device. This makes card-not-present type fraud impossible, increases consumer trust and as a result, improves the payment conversion rate.
- No credit/debit card? No problem! Direct carrier billing allows anyone – irrespective of having a credit card or not – to purchase in-app content and services. In emerging markets, direct carrier billing is often the only way for users to purchase content and services, which means digital content and physical services merchants are increasingly relying on this payment method.
How it works?
Let’s say it’s Friday and you’re not particularly keen to go out. On your smartphone, you decide to play your favourite game, but the enemies get the better of you and you lose all your lives. No worries, you can now purchase additional lives, and can make your payment using DCB. Select to pay through your mobile phone, and then complete the payment steps, which are simple and don’t require a credit card. You can then enjoy a smooth payment experience using DCB.
For contract customers the amount will be added to their monthly mobile phone bill, while prepaid customers will have the amount deducted directly from their available airtime.
DCB is another way HUAWEI Mobile Services provides smart, simple, convenient, and secure ways for customers to pay for services using their devices and they can keep an eye on their budgets, too, as the value of each DCB transaction is capped at R500.
