DOCOMO Digital is a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT DOCOMO based in Europe. Besides innovating and bringing to market our own mobile payment solutions globally, we also manage a set of leading mobile entertainment and payment businesses with a combined experience of 20+ years.
Based in Europe, we are nearly 1,000 professionals in 35 cities globally across 6 regions, partnering with over 200 mobile network operators processing over 2bn Euros worth of transactions per year.
At DOCOMO Digital, we believe that today and tomorrow’s connected devices will continue to revolutionize how we live. As mobile technology continues to permeate our lives, we are experiencing increased empowerment, convenience and freedom. But omnipresent connected technology brings with it risks and challenges in particular relating to safety, security, privacy and inclusion. As a mobile and connected technology pioneer and ecosystem enabler, we think that mobile network operators stand to play the key central role in building and operating next-generation commerce platforms that will make life better for everyone.
We are working hard with our global partners to ensure that we build together an ecosystem that meets the promises for a better connected life while also addressing potential challenges. In fact, we believe that direct carrier billing (DCB), the ability for customers to pay for goods and services using their existing mobile carrier pre-paid or post-paid account, is key to mobile-centricity as it offers significant advantages over other new or established mobile payment methods (e.g., frictionless consumer convenience increase purchasing conversions, reduced credit and fraud risk, global reach and inclusion to unbanked populations).
As a direct carrier billing (DCB) technical integrator and service provider, our platform solutions span the entire spectrum of payment methods from SMS to in-app purchasing. Our DCB product currently supports complex requirements from the most demanding digital service providers and real world merchants. Currently, we have integrated over 200 mobile operators in 100 countries where we are continuously upgrading these connections and adding new ones. We can offer merchants the broadest operator reach over our advanced proprietary network.
