Not too long ago Exadel’s David Schoenbach published a guest post on the ProgrammableWeb site about how mobile app developers could make more money. The answer was carrier-based billing. The article also discussed the obstacle to greater use of carrier billing: the need for common APIs for different carriers. This effort is ongoing at the Wholesale Apps Community and Aepona.
In the meantime, we are always happy to see good pieces out there that educate people further about the idea of carrier billing. We recently came across one such piece from our friends at Elastic Path. It’s an excellent introduction.
