How Do You Pay For Your Google Play Purchases?
4.0By Athanasios Zarkadas May 03, 2012 09:28 AM
Google is trying to find every convenient way to pay for any and all purchases of the Google Play store and this latest one is by far the easiest.
Normally you would have to input one of your credit or debit cards in to Google Play (Google Wallet), and all your charges went to the card. Now, Google is offering to charge your cellular provider and it would appear in your next statement. No, it will not save you money, and all prices are the same.
Not all cellular providers are on board with this new purchasing power that uses your smartphone bill as a credit card. Verizon seems to be flat out against it, and AT&T is still staying away but T-Mobile is all aboard, so those of you with a HTC One S will be able to enjoy their new Google Play payment feature.
Google had this to say on a Google Play post:
There are many ways to pay on Google Play. Some carriers offer direct billing that lets you charge your Google Play purchases directly to your monthly phone bill.
This week we expanded this service to include all types of digital content on Google Play. In the U.S., T-Mobile customers can now purchase apps, music, movies and books by charging them directly to their mobile bill. In Japan, DoCoMo, KDDI and Softbank customers can also enjoy the convenience of paying for movies, apps and games on their mobile bills, too. And coming soon, Sprint will offer expanded direct billing options so you can pay for more digital content for your Android device.

Everything is moving into the digital world. Are you ready?
