O2 Germany has partnered Apple to launch direct carrier billing to enable its contract and prepaid customers to use the service to purchase apps, music, movies, TV shows, books, magazines and subscriptions via Apple iTunes & Appstore. No pre-registration is necessary in order to make purchases with O2 mobile phone billing.
According to O2, customers only need to have a new or existing Apple ID, and select “Mobile Phone” as their payment method from their account settings on Apple Music, the iTunes Store, App Store or iBooks Store from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or from iTunes on their Mac or PC. Once Mobile Phone Billing has been selected, all future purchases with the customer's Apple ID will be automatically charged as part of the monthly bill or directly deducted from the customers’ prepaid account.
Customers of other O2 Germany brands including FONIC or Tchibo mobil can also make payments via mobile phone billing for Apple Music, iTunes, App Store and iBooks Store purchases.
