In a first for Africa, Telkom has launched Direct Carrier Billing for the Google Play content store.
Our customers can now purchase apps, music, movies and other content directly from the Google Play Store and charge it directly to their Telkom Mobile bill or use their airtime to pay.
Our contract customers can charge it to their Mobile bill while prepaid customers are able to purchase using their airtime. What's more, you can now also make in-app purchases without leaving the app and interrupting the app experience.

I am a mobile app developer and I am currently building an e-commerce application. I would like my app to have carrier billing as one of the payment options. Is this possible and if it is how do I go around to make it work?

Hi @serame_rasweu, Carrier Billing is an option from Google that let's you put your Play Store purchases onto your Telkom Account or pay using your existing airtime.
