What is Charge to Bill?
Charge to Bill, also known as direct carrier billing, is a simple way to pay for digital content subscriptions, once off payments and in-app charges by adding them to your monthly bill.
It’s an alternative, simple and safe way to buy a product or digital content from our Charge to Bill partners on your phone.
This means you no longer have to enter your credit card details or passwords online – your purchase will be added to your monthly bill or deducted from your credit if you’re a Pay as you go customer.
How do I use Charge to Bill?
When buying a product or digital content online on your phone, choose the pay by mobile option at the checkout, instead of adding in your card details.
