Japan’s largest mobile carrier – none other than NTT DoCoMo – has announced that its DCMX mobile payment service reached 10 million subscribers as of August 24.
With the DCMX service, DoCoMo’s customers can make purchases using their phones as iD credit cards. iD is DoCoMo’s mobile payment platform for cell phones that come with contactless IC cards, aka Osaifu-Keitai.
The Japanese carrier says that more than 30 million people use Osaifu-Keitai-compatible mobile phones.
NTT DoCoMo’s customers can currently choose three DCMX plans: DCMX mini, DCMX standard and DCMX GOLD.
Available since April 2006, DCMX reached 1 million subscribers in November the same year, and 5 million subscribers in February 2008.
