One of the core missions for Xbox has always been to offer premium gaming to the greatest number of people around the world – powered by the biggest lineup of games in Xbox history. Central to our goal of making gaming on Xbox accessible to more fans around the world is making sure gamers have a choice in how they purchase content in our Store.
That’s why we offer Mobile Operator Billing on Xbox to make buying your next favorite game easier and safer than ever. In case you’ve never heard of Operator Billing, it’s one of the most popular payment methods around the world because it doesn’t require a credit card. Today, many Xbox gamers use their phone number to pay for games, movies, TV shows and much more, and have the charges added directly to their phone bill. Best of all, once this payment method is added to a Microsoft Account, all future purchases can be charged automatically.
Xbox gamers on the following mobile operators can use Operator Billing today in the Xbox Store on Xbox One, as well as in the Xbox App on Windows 10 devices and iOS and Android smartphones, depending on location. It even includes purchasing Xbox Play Anywhere titles from the Windows Store, such as “ReCore,” “Forza Horizon 3,” and “Gears of War 4,” all available now.
