Google counts on carrier billing as a mobile payment service

Google offers carrier billing as a mobile payment option

The development of the mobile commerce industry has also generated a parallel growth in mobile payment options. They range anywhere from direct billing to mobile NFC and digital wallets. One of key players in this industry is Onebip by Neomobile, a mobile payment service based on a payment system known as carrier billing, a payment method through which users can make purchases through their smartphone or tablet and pay directly from their phone bill.

With Onebip, Neomobile offers a mobile payment option that gives application developers a tool to monetize all the digital content available on their products. Likewise, carrier billing provides the user an easy way to make a secure payment. Neomobile firmly believes in the benefits of carrier billing. That’s why we want to highlight how Google has decided to embrace this mobile payment system.

Apart from credit card payments and the company’s digital wallet (Google Wallet), today Google’s mobile customers can buy apps and digital content using their carrier billing system on the Google Play Store. With this option, any digital purchases made are billed directly to a user’s phone bill. Google currently offers this payment option in more than 20 countries around the world. Spain is a great example of success, where Movistar and Orange users can shop through carrier billing.

Adtile, a startup that says it’s bringing an “app store”-style approach to mobile ads, is announcing that it has raised $4.5 million in Series A funding.

Earlier this year, I wrote about the company’s Motion Ads format, which asks users to interact with their ads by shaking, turning, and otherwise playing with them. For example, a coffee shop ad could ask users to shake their phones, emptying a virtual coffee cup in the process, which then reveals a list of nearby stores.
