3 PT Hutchison 3 Indonesia (H3I), the second largest mobile broadband traffic operators in Indonesia, are to enable subscribers to pay for any Windows apps purchases via Direct Carrier Billing for games and apps.
The Indonesian operator awarded the contract to the Dusseldorf based Direct Carrier Billing specialist net-m, which is a subsidiary of DOCOMO Digital – the holding company for the global digital ecosystem platform business operations of NTT DOCOMO. The deal is part of parent company CK Hutchison Group’s “3” framework contract, which has already seen customers of “3” in Italy already use the new payment method in Windows Phone Store.
Sebastian Böhm, Senior Vice President and Executive Director responsible for Payment Solutions at net mobile AG says: “Indonesia is a fast growing market in South-Eastern Asia with 254.3 million inhabitants and more than 318.5 million mobile connections. The SIM penetration, at 125%, is much higher than credit card penetration, which is only 6.2% or 15.8 million cards. As a result, we are happy to enable H3I’s Windows Phone users to pay for digital goods such as applications and games easily and securely via their mobile phone bill.”
net-m works in close collaboration with Microsoft and other OTT players and maintains a leadership position for mobile payment services globally. net-m’s payment infrastructure makes it easy to connect different payment interfaces and guarantees stringent compliance with various regulatory and technical requirements when in operation.
As a result of its innovative payment architecture for mobile network operators around the world, the Dusseldorf specialist for mobile payment serves approximately 220 million users who can pay for purchased digital goods easily and safely via their mobile phone bill with the one-click Direct Carrier Billing payment method.
