Smart Carrier Billing lets you charge your Apple App Store, Apple Music, and iTunes purchases to your Smart Postpaid account or Smart Prepaid load.
This is perfect for people who do not have credit cards or mobile wallets, and want to purchase from Apple’s App Store, Apple Music, and iTunes.
For the longest time, the need for a credit or debit card has kept many Filipinos from maximizing the full potential of their iOS devices. By introducing Smart Carrier Billing, we are eliminating this barrier and therefore empowering our customers to truly embrace the digital lifestyle with easy access to millions of paid iOS apps and digital content at their fingertips.Oscar A. Reyes, SVP and Head of Individual Consumer Business
