In Latin America, carrier billing is the second most popular payment method for online gaming according to SuperDataResearch. Carrier billing holds a 21% market share among all payment methods, making Latin America the most popular region for carrier billing globally.

This is because bank cards are available to very few people in the region, for example only 32% of people in Brazil and 17% in Mexico have a credit card. At the same time, more than 155 million people already own a smartphone, a number which is estimated to double by 2019. This makes carrier billing the perfect alternative to bank-based payments in Latin America.
