Docomo Digital links with Spainish mobile parking app for carrier billing
Docomo Digital has partnered with the popular Spanish mobile ticket app e-Park to enable customers of the country's three largest mobile carriers to buy parking tickets via direct carrier billing, a first for Europe, according to a press release.
The service is available for any mobile device running iOS or Android and supported by the Movistar, Vodaphone or Orange network. The e-Park app is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
According to the announcement, e-Park has become Spain's leading mobile service for parking. More than a half-million customers have downloaded the free app since 2013. Annually, e-Park manages approximately 12.5 million tickets and more than 5 million bank transactions across 13 Spanish cities where it is available.
"The possibility to pay by mobile is a key feature of our business and once again we are pioneering by introducing direct carrier billing to pay for parking," Jaime López de Aguilar, executive president of e-Park, said in a statement.
