Australia’s Optus announced that beginning 5th May 2014, Android users with a post-paid Optus account will be able to sign up for the direct carrier billing service on Google Play via a one-time registration and validation process.
Optus users will now be able to purchase stuff from the Google Play Store and have the charges added automatically to their monthly phone bill. This service was previously only available for Telstra users, and basically translates into customers no longer having to buy Google Play cards or share their credit card information with Google before buying anything.
How does it work?
