Have you made any purchase online or inside mobile games, social networks, or others using your mobile device recently? Mobiamo mobile payments are used for purchasing digital goods and services online or in mobile applications.
How are payments and charges authorized?
Mobiamo payments can only be authorized with your mobile phone. If other people have access to your phone, such as family members, please check with them.

You can use a prepaid / pay-as-you-go phone as long as your phone has sufficient balance at the time of the purchase.
Can I still pay even if I don't have a bank account or credit card?
With Mobiamo, you don’t need to have a bank account or a credit card to make payments. All you need is an active mobile phone that allows Premium SMS, Direct Carrier Billing or access to value added services. Most mobile carriers have mobile payments enabled for you by default. In case it is not yet enabled for you, or you are not sure, please contact your mobile carrier directly.
