Amazon and Bango launch carrier billing for apps in German


New York -- Amazon and the U.K.-based mobile payments company, Bango, have teamed up with Germany’s Telefónica Deutschland to deliver carrier billing services on Telefónica’s network in Germany. The service will allow people who buy paid apps and make in-app purchases through Amazon’s appstore to charge that directly to their phone bills.

The service will be deployed gradually through next year on certain Amazon mobile applications running on Telefónica devices in Germany.

It’s taken nearly three years for Amazon to launch its first carrier billing service out the door. But tech experts noted that other expansions in other markets may not take as long.
