Smart rolls out country's first Pay-With-Mobile service to bring Apple content to more Pinoys
|Smart Postpaid subs can now charge iOS and iTunes straight to their postpaid account|
Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), in an arrangement with BDO Unibank, Inc. (BDO), announced today that it is bringing more digital content closer to Filipinos by rolling out Smart Pay-With-Mobile, a groundbreaking service that allows mobile users to charge their App Store, iTunes and Apple Music purchases straight to their postpaid account – a first in the Philippines.
Through Smart Pay-With-Mobile, Filipinos may now buy apps, books, games, magazines and movies on the App Store and iTunes, as well as pay for their Apple Music subscription – even without a credit card, which has long been a barrier for many mobile users in maximizing their Apple devices.
Smart Pay-With-Mobile will initially be available to Smart Postpaid subscribers on Plan 599 and up, as well as Smart Bro subscribers on iPad Plans.
Smart offers the service as an official iTunes affiliate, putting the telco in the best position to deliver Apple content and services to more mobile users in the country.
Through the service, Smart subscribers can fully enjoy apps and games like Clash of Clans, Minecraft, Hearthstone, Candy Crush, and Grand Auto Theft III, as well tune into the latest Apple Music hits from chart-toppers like Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Maroon 5, Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, among many others.
Smart Pay-With-Mobile can be activated by texting REG to 4949 – a one-time, text-based registration. After which, subscribers will be given a unique Virtual Credit Card number which they can use exclusively with their iTunes accounts. The whole registration takes just a few clicks – no required financial documents, no waiting in lines, and no hassle.
“Our goal is to eventually make Smart Pay-With-Mobile available to all our users, including our prepaid subscribers, who for now can rely on Smart Money, an innovative electronic mobile wallet, to purchase Apple content and services even without a credit card,” said Fermin.
