Company Database - DOCOMO Digital

Provide choice for consumers and simplicity for brands

DOCOMO Digital is the international payments business of NTT DOCOMO. We partner with carriers, merchants, OTT services, app stores, and payment providers in both developed and emerging markets around the world. We solve the challenges of customer acquisition and retention, regulation, and complexity for our partners with alternative payment methods such as direct carrier billing and digital wallets.

How the payment method works

Direct Carrier Billing allows consumers to buy digital content and services with a few clicks and pay for those services as part of their mobile phone bills or with their pre-paid balances. In addition to Direct Carrier Billing, we aggregate the most locally-relevant payment methods for our merchant partners. 

Target market
