Setting Up Pay via Celcom/ Digi

Just follow the simple steps below for a one-time setup:

Step 1: From the app you want to purchase, click on the price button

Step 2: Accept the access condition

Step 3: Click 'Continue' to set up payment method

Step 4: Select 'Enable Celcom/Digi billing'

Purchasing Apps

Most of the apps are free to download. However, some apps require purchase on a freemium basis. Freemium means the apps are free to download but have in-app purchases. In-app purchases are credits/ points that you need to buy while going through the application, mostly applicable in games.


After purchasing, you will get an email notification to your Google mail ID, and the app purchased will appear under the 'My Apps' section of Google Play™ Store. A detailed history of your transactions on Google Play is also available on your Google Wallet page.
