Jakarta, Gizmologi – Not only digital payment methods are now easier with many choices. In using a smartphone, users often want to purchase an application or a special paid feature. But then it is hindered by limited ways of paying, especially for those who do not have a credit card.
For Android smartphone users themselves, there are already many options that can be tailored to personal preferences. Google Play has accepted how to pay via operator credit, DANA, DOKU, ShopeePay to purchasing vouchers from minimarkets. The situation is not the same when compared to the Apple AppStore, as the options are much more limited.
Apart from credit cards, the easiest alternative for those who don’t have this payment method is to use a debit card, iTunes Gift Card to the DANA digital wallet—already available since early 2020. Well, the good news is, now Apple iPhone users can also use GoPay to buy apps, games and more from the AppStore.
After Netflix, Apple gets a payment method via GoPay
It seems that Gojek’s payment method is indeed undergoing a massive expansion. At the same time, GoPay can also be used as a payment method for your favorite video streaming platform, Netflix. This will certainly benefit both parties, both for GoPay and of course Netflix.
The availability of GoPay as a payment method on Apple smartphones was discovered by one of the followers of the MakeMac Twitter social media account. Where it is known that GoPay is available as one of the newest payment method options when we access the Payments menu on the Apple ID page view.
Want to add GoPay as a payment method on your iPhone? It’s very easy. Simply access the Settings menu, then select the Apple ID account that appears at the very top. In it, go to the Payment & Shipping menu, then “Add Payment Method” aka add a new payment method.
In addition to debit cards, credit cards and the DANA digital wallet, payment options with GoPay appear at the bottom row. When selected, a new option to log in will appear. Perform the process in the GoPay application by entering a PIN, and you’re done!
Can Subscribe to iCloud & Apple One
If successful, GoPay will appear at the top of the range of payment modes that were previously available. When later you intend to change your GoPay number, just select the option “use a different GoPay account” to re-register a new number.
By entering a GoPay account on the Apple ID payment method, users can not only use it to buy applications and games from the AppStore. Also includes other services such as iCloud, Apple Music, to Apple One subscription.
Oh yes, the process of purchasing applications or others using GoPay, will not require additional steps to input a pin in the Gojek application. That is, when it detects a face or fingerprint sensor, the system will immediately deduct your GoPay balance. So if it’s just for fun, don’t buy it too late!
