The new offer by telecommunications giant, MTN, is a solution many have waited years for. For the longest time, it has been impossible to purchase applications from Google Play Store without having a debit or credit card from a Western country or an address from said country. Over time the banks have introduced debit and credit cards that allow you to shop online and even use these cards to purchase apps and games, but there were so many caveats to this solution.
Some cards come with high maintenance fees while others charge high sign-on fees making this accessible to only a small portion of the populace leaving the vast majority without access to applications for work or entertainment. Thankfully that is an issue of the past.
Just like MTN Mobile Money (MoMo) brought convenience to money transfer a few years ago when it was introduced to the Ghanaian market, the new solution – MTN Google Carrier Billing – offers you the convenience, safety, security and service you need anytime, anywhere.
The new service gives users the convenience of setting up their mobile money to pay for applications from Google Play Store without going through the hassle of looking for debit or credit cards and exposing your cards to thieves or robbers.
Because each transaction is verified with a unique MoMo pin, even when you lose your phone or it gets stolen your money is safe. Another great feature about using MoMo for your carrier billing is you’re able to use your account to purchase applications for your loved ones on their devices without worrying about them making purchases without your approval.
Setting up is super easy and can be completed in five easy steps. To start, unlock your phone and follow the steps below.
Step One – Click to open your Google Play Store app,
Step Two – Open the “Menu” by clicking three lines on the upper left corner inside the search bar. Scroll through and select “Account.”
Step Three – Under “Preference” which is the first option, select “Use MTN MoMo Billing” and select “Continue.”
Step Four – Enable MTN MoMo billing by clicking the “Enable” button.
Step Five – Enter your billing address and save the settings.
You are now on your way to enjoy your favourite premium applications with no interference. Just choose your app, select purchase and input your MoMo pin to validate each purchase.
Whatever your needs are whether it is a photo editing app for your DIY Christmas card, video editing app for your YouTube channel, designing an app for your start-up’s brochure or your favourite game; MTN Google Carrier Billing connects you to the solutions you need.
