Direct Billing offers as we mentioned before are typically for mobile content offers. The user needs to subscribe to continuously receive specific content such as wallpapers, themes, video-on-demand, and more.

There are two modes of direct billing flows, and these are:

  • 1-Click Conversion — this is where the user simply needs to click on a button to accept the charge or confirm subscription
  • 2-Click Conversion — this flow includes an additional confirmation page after the first button is clicked. This is to ensure that the user really understands what he is signing up for.
