German operator billing now possible through MACH

MACH has now diversified in the app space with in-app operator billing in Germany.

MACH is a giant in payments that works with mobile and fixed telephony companies. This new deal, for the first time in Germany, will enable direct operator billing for more than 80 million mobile subscribers across the country.

German mobile phone subscribers will now be able to buy apps and in-app extras with the cost going to their phone bill.

The content providers and app stores can also offer operator billing without them having to set up individual agreements with the individual mobile phone operators in Germany.

This new Direct Billing Gateway improves the previous solutions for operator billing like redirection to WAP payment pages and reverse-billed SMS.

As per Charles Damen, VO – Mobile Content and Apps, MACH, this new deal will simplify the apps ecosystem in Germany and bring true e-commerce functionality to apps propositions.
