KPN starts carrier billing on Google Play

Wednesday 14 August 2013 | 10:35 CET | News
KPN has started offering carrier billing for purchases on Google Play. This means customers with Android devices can pay for app and content purchases through their KPN bill. Previously this was only possible with a credit card. Customers at KPN's subsidiary Hi will also have access to the new billing method. It will initially be offered to consumers and later business customers. Purchases on the store billed to the mobile invoice will be limited to EUR 10 per transaction and EUR 100 per month. Customers also need to be connected to the KPN network when they make the first purchase. Syniverse announced that its Direct Operator Billing platform was used by KPN to implement the new service. T-Mobile Netherlands and Vodafone Netherlands will likely cut a similar agreement with Google. Both operator have such deals in place in other countries. A T-Mobile-NL spokesman said the operator was also in talks with both Google and Apple about carrier billing but could name no launch date. T-Mobile NL has already signed similar deals with BlackBerry and Windows Phone.
