Mobile payments provider, Bango says that it has signed a carrier billing agreement with Etisalat for its networks in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Etisalat has become the first operator to offer direct operator billing for Google Play users in the Middle East, where subscribers can now use one-click payment powered by Bango, paying on their phone bill, without the need to register personal details.
The established partnership between Bango and Etisalat has already seen carrier billing launched for users of BlackBerry World. This new agreement will deliver further app store integrations, beginning today with Google Play.
Bango says that it has emerged as the de facto global leader in Direct Operator Billing, powering many of the world's largest app stores, including Amazon, BlackBerry World, Facebook, Firefox Marketplace, Google Play, Windows Phone Store and with more than 130 live operator connections.
Etisalat and Bango expect to be able to announce further DOB app store integrations in the coming period.
