What is Direct Carrier Billing?
Direct Carrier Billing allows you to make gaming purchases with your prepaid load or via your postpaid bill. No need for a credit card linked to your Google Play, Codashop, Facebook Gaming or any other DCB accounts. So whether it’s Mobile Legends you’re playing, or Valorant or Call of Duty Mobile, the gaming never stops.
How-To: Google Play
The Google Play Store app is built-in to every Android device by default, which is why it’s such a convenient way to get access to your apps. And with Direct Carrier Billing, there are more ways to enhance the overall experience.
Just head on over to the settings on Google Play, click “Add Payment Method” and enable Carrier Billing. Available for Globe Prepaid, Globe Postpaid and TM subscribers.
Meanwhile, Codashop has quickly become one of the largest and most trusted top-up websites for games and online entertainment—so if this is your preferred way to get your gaming appetite filled, you’re still very much covered.
When you click on the website and enter your details, Direct Carrier Billing is one of the payment methods that you can choose to make your purchases. Get all the diamonds your gamer heart is looking for! Available for Globe Prepaid and TM subscribers.
How-To: Facebook Gaming
There is also Facebook Gaming, which pretty much aggregates live and pre-recorded gaming video on the social media platform. Stars are the currency to spend on favorite content creators.
