BASE-customers can pay their Google Play purchases via their phone bill

Thursday, February 12, 2015 — BASE wants to support their customers in an optimal mobile experience. That’s why, today, BASE launches ‘Direct Operator Billing’ for purchases made on Google PlayTM. That makes it possible for all BASE customers to purchase apps, games, music, movies and books in the Google Play Store and pay for it via their phone.  

Currently BASE customers had to pay for their purchases in the Play Store via their credit card, a gift card, or other payment provider. As of today, customers using an AndroidTM smartphone, will be able to purchase their content and pay for it via their phone bill.  The service is enabled for both, postpaid and prepaid customers. Customers of BASE partners (JIM Mobile, Türk Telekom, Contact Mobile and Allo RTL) are also able to use this service.

The most common smartphones running Android are Samsung, HTC, LG devices, but also other smartphone brands have models running Android.

“With this launch we take another step in optimizing and simplifying the mobile experience for our customers”, says Jos Donvil, CEO of BASE Company. “As buying online and including apps to simplify your daily life is becoming a commodity we want to make that even easier for our customers with this new payment service. Last year we launched this offer for the Windows phone store, today we add an extra step.”
