How it works?

The consumer makes a digital content selection on the website. Then, he will be taken through several payment pages, depending of his connection (3-4G or WiFi). His purchase will be charged to his mobile phone bill.

Example of DCB flow (using a 3G or a 4G connection):

Our flow automatically recognises the consumer’s
mobile number through the mobile network provider.
Once all steps have been successfully completed, the
digital content is available to the customer and a
purchase confirmation receipt will be sent to him via
SMS.
