Telkom customers can now directly bill Google Play purchases

Don’t feel like having media purchased through Google Play billed directly to your credit card? Well, now you can have those charges simply added to your monthly phone bill, provided you’re on Telkom Mobile.

According to Telkom’s press release about the move, they will soon be offering the option to pay for apps, movies, books and movies purchased through Google’s market – all thanks to the integration of Telkom’s Event Billing service with the Bango Payments Platform – along side your voice and data plan or even your prepaid account.

To make secure purchases and payments, customers would be expected to follow the below process:

• Have a Telkom mobile SIM card in an Android device that is connected to Telkom’s mobile network;
• Open the Google Play™ Store, choose a book, app or game to buy, and select Enable Telkom Billing as a payment method;
• Confirm that this is the app, book or game that you want to buy and enjoy the world of app entertainment!
