zain zoneMobile network operator Zain Kuwait has added direct operator billing for its customers using the Android Wakti Games and Apps stores. Wakti, which debuted in May 2014 and is based in Dubai, is a dedicated gaming and application platform created by Huawei that has become one of the leading app stores in the market.

The direct operator billing is provided through an agreement between Huawei Technologies Kuwait branch and mobile solutions provider SLA Mobile. The carrier billing solution will enable Zain subscribers to purchase digital content from the store by charging the amount to their prepaid credit or monthly bill.

“At Huawei Kuwait, we are committed to providing our customers with a one stop shop for applications,” said Gao Libin, director of carrier software business for Huawei Kuwait. “By partnering with SLA Mobile we are able to further distinguish our offering by giving Zain subscribers the opportunity to purchase applications using Direct Operator Billing.”

“Partnering with Huawei Technologies Kuwait delivers another lucrative merchant to Zain Kuwait subscribers,” said Amelia Power, head of sales and marketing at SLA Mobile. “The partnership presents Huawei Technologies Kuwait with the opportunity of a new channel to market as Zain subscribers can rest assured that by using Direct Operator Billing their payments will be secure.”
