Mobilink Enables Phone-Based Purchasing from Nokia App Store
Mobilink customers will now be able to make direct purchases from the Nokia App Store utilizing Mobilink’s operator billing system. This unique system will enable customers to purchase apps and other content from the Nokia App Store using the credit from their postpaid or prepaid accounts.
Mobilink customers can select an app of their choice from the Nokia App Store and then select the ‘Phone Bill’ as the payment option for their download. Mobilink subscribers will be able to use their phones as a payment method. Instead of using a credit card, customers will be able to add the cost of a game or app downloaded from the Nokia store to a monthly bill or have it deducted from their prepaid credit. GPRS charges will apply for accessing and downloading from the Nokia App Store.
Moied Javeed, Director Marketing, Mobilink highlighted, “Mobilink continues to work towards providing cutting edge services to its customers. This latest facility for all our customers using Nokia phones offers a reliable, easy to use and quick way to pay for Nokia App purchases and complements our partnership with Nokia.’’
Previously, customers could pay for their favourite apps through credit cards, which was a relatively cumbersome and insecure mode of transactions. The provision of operator billing enables a safer platform of payments for Mobilink’s customers across Pakistan.
