Beginning today, August 15, Smart customers will be able to pay for App Store, Apple Music and iTunes purchases across Apple devices via carrier billing — providing a safe, secure and versatile payment method to meet the Philippines’ growing demand for digital entertainment.
How it works: Making payments with carrier billing
Signing up for carrier billing takes only a few simple steps. Smart customers need to have a new or existing Apple ID, and select “Mobile Phone” as their payment method from their account settings on App Store, Apple Music and iTunes from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, or on iTunes from their PC.
Once “Mobile Phone” has been selected, all future purchases with the customer's Apple ID will be automatically charged as part of the monthly carrier bill or directly deducted from the customer’s prepaid account — eliminating the need to use a credit card.
The new payment option will be configured automatically and immediately allow for easy, one-tap purchasing from all Apple devices, including Apple TV and Apple Watch. This includes purchases of apps, music, movies, TV shows, as well as Apple Music subscriptions and iCloud storage. No personal information will be shared with any third parties, making carrier billing both simple and safe to set up and use.
