Türk Telekom, an enabler of digital transformation in Turkey, has collaborated with DOCOMO Digital, the app store integrator, to deploy direct operator billing for Huawei Application Gallery.
Operator or carrier billing is an increasingly popular mode of payment for digital services especially in emerging markets across the Middle East region, as it allows faster and frictionless transactions in App stores such as Huawei Galaxy, while providing better transparency and control over purchases for subscribers. Digital content consumption has been on a steady rise in Turkey.
