Direct carrier billing (DCB) is a type of online payment that allows consumers to charge the cost of a purchase to their phone bill. This online payment method is applicable to all smartphone and feature phone users. Consumers can use DCB to buy content on any digital platform. This method was earlier used for the purchase of ringtones and wallpaper on feature phone, however, now it can be used to purchase products and services through multiple channels, including desktop computers, smartphones, smart TVs, and game consoles. For instance, people can buy a music streaming subscription on a tablet device by confirming the payment on their phone.

Direct carrier billing is different from other mobile payment methods such as mobile wallets or NFC solutions since the former does not depend on banking infrastructure to complete a trasaction. DCB requires the user to enter only their phone number to make a payment.  Billing Platform providers such as Boku, NTT DoCoMo, and Singtel allows the merchants to connect with many Mobile Network Operators (MNO) through a single interface. MNOs make it possible for the consumers to charge purchases to their phone bills.
