Dubbed "Pay-With-Mobile", this new service eliminates the need for a credit card. A Smart subscriber can now have access to paid content and even make in-app purchases through the App Store (Philippines only) and iTunes. Just imagine the impact of this on many Smart subscribers who had smartphones but didn't have a credit card.
Pay-With-Mobile is the latest in Smart's digital solutions, after introducing other solutions like Pasaload, Smartnet, etc.
Here's how it works.
1. Register by texting REG to 4949. You will receive your very own Pay-With-Mobile number and other pertinent account details. You will receive a confirmation text.
|Remember these details. You'll need them in Step 2.|
2. On your Apple device, go to Settings-iTunes & App Store. Choose "Payment Information", then "Mastercard". Input the details sent to you (see Step 1), then click "Done".
|This is where you input the details sent to you (see Step 1)|
IMPORTANT: Every transaction using Pay-With-Mobile has a 15% convenience fee tacked on top of the App Store or iTunes published price. This includes the 12% value-added tax (VAT) and foreign exchange rate difference in dollars.
The Pay-With-Mobile service will begin rolling out on February 16 but due to the expected volume of subscribers availing of this, full availability will be by February 18.
