Optus customers can pay for Google Play content on monthly bill


googleplaylogoFrom today, Optus customers can now buy games, movies, music, apps and eBooks from the Google Play Store and have it added to their post-paid monthly bill.

Optus customers on post-paid plans can download content to their Android smartphones and tablets and have the charges appear directly in their monthly bill.

Using this service there is no need to store any credit card information with the Google Play Store or manage a separate bill.

To help avoid bill shock, Optus has set a $49.99 limit per transaction and a cap of $200 per month on all content purchased through Optus My Account.

Customers can sign up for direct billing through a one-time registration and Google Play validation service on their smartphone or tablet.

“We’re making it hassle-free for our Android customers – there’s no need to store a credit card or worry about paying multiple bills – so they don’t have to waste time before starting their next game of Angry Birds or buying extra lives in Candy Crush Saga,” says Ben White, vice president, mobile marketing, Optus.

“We’re helping prevent bill shock by giving customers control to set up spend limits or add a pin for more security.

“Plus, people are protected from accidental or change of mind purchases with a 15 minute window for cancellations.”
