Bango enables direct carrier billing for Amazon customers in Japan
Bango announced that it has enabled a new payment method for Amazon customers in Japan. Amazon customers with a KDDI or NTT Docomo mobile phone account can now pay for physical goods from Amazon.co.jp by charging the cost to their mobile phone bill, according to a press release.
To use this payment option, a KDDI or NTT Docomo subscriber simply adds carrier billing as a payment option in their Amazon.co.jp account and then purchases can be made from any device, with the cost charged to their post-paid phone bill.
“Internet usage in Japan is mobile-first, with billions of dollars in online purchases charged to Japanese consumers' phone bills," Bango CEO Ray Anderson said in a statement. "The Bango platform ensures global retailers can offer these customers the trust and transparency they want from a payment method and can deliver this at scale.
