This is how it works

In our video we show how easy paying by mobile phone bill can be. 

Shopping couldn't be faster

The purchase amount of your desired item will be charged to your next mobile phone bill. Without entering sensitive data from your bank account or credit card. All you need is a smartphone with a mobile phone contract.

There are four different processes for paying by mobile phone bill. The respective provider decides which processes are used.

Paying in app stores or for in-app purchases

In the app store settings, select "Pay by mobile phone bill" as the payment method. Your own mobile phone number must be entered. After a check by the App Store, you are ready to go. In-app purchases are then also possible. You will see your payments on your next mobile phone bill.

Payment on the Mobile Internet

When you use your smartphone to browse the Internet via the mobile network, shopping becomes even easier. After making a purchase on a carrier's site, you'll be redirected to your mobile carrier for payment.

The respective network operator recognizes your phone number and provides a payment page for you to confirm your payment. Therefore, there is no need to enter the phone number beforehand. After confirming your payment, you return to the provider and can immediately use the purchased product. You will see your payments on your next mobile phone bill.

Pay on the Internet directly on your PC or game console

Purchases via the PC or via a game console must be confirmed by means of a TAN code.

After purchasing a product, you will be taken to the payment page of the mobile phone provider after entering your own phone number. At the same time, you will receive a TAN code on your mobile phone via SMS. By entering the TAN code on the payment page and confirming the payment, the purchase is completed. You will then be returned to the provider and can immediately use the purchased product. You will see your payments on your next mobile phone bill.

Pay by SMS

Some providers advertise numbers that can be used to make payments or donations via SMS.

In these cases, the amount or a password will be sent by SMS to the advertised number.
The entire payment process takes place via SMS, as does the payment approval, which is obtained from the mobile phone provider via SMS. The approval is given by a reply SMS with "YES". The SMS channel is only used for the communication of the payment. There are no further costs for the SMS communication. You will see your payments on your next mobile phone bill.
