TechInAfrica – A new payment platform is live in Huawei’s app store AppGallery, which is called Direct Carrier Billing (DCB), with Safaricom’s M-PESA powering the platform.
The platform allows in-app purchases such as micro-transaction for games starting from KES 30.
“At HUAWEI, our users are at the heart of everything we do and we are constantly looking at ways to increase their overall experience with our products. I am excited about our HUAWEI and M-PESA partnership with Safaricom, as this new additional method of online payment is not only hassle-free but also so much more convenient,” said HUAWEI Mobile Kenya Country Head, Jim Zhujie.
“We are proud to partner with HUAWEI to offer our customers the simplicity of purchasing from HUAWEI Mobile Services using M-PESA. This shows that our customers are increasingly adopting digital offerings and we are continuously looking to meet this demand with fresh offerings that will add value to our customers,” Safaricom CEO, Peter Ndegwac commented on the partnership.
“As we continue to roll out our 5G network, we believe that the demand for smarter apps will increase and we want to ensure that our customers enjoy the benefits of modern connected life in an easy, convenient and safe way.”
