Research In Motion (RIM) announced that more than 50 carriers have now implemented integrated carrier billing on the BlackBerry App World™ storefront for their customers.
Integrated carrier billing enables a customer to purchase apps or digital goods on their BlackBerry smartphone, and simply and conveniently have the purchases put directly on their regular monthly bill from their carrier. Integrated carrier billing is also integrated with the BlackBerry Payment Service, which enables developers and content providers to offer in-app purchases (such as additional levels in a game), as well as supporting one-off and recurring (subscription-based) purchases, without interrupting the customer’s app experience.
Currently the list of carriers include amongst others, Vodafone, O2, Virgin Mobile, DigiCell, AT&T across USA, the UK, Europe and Canada.
Below is the list as of 26 November 2012. For a complete list of carriers, check out the bottom of the page at App World.
