Changes to Premium Direct Billing (PDB) for third party services that are not provided by Telstra
Sometimes we need to review what we offer our customers
We have made the decision to stop third party (non-Telstra) Premium Direct Billing services and subscriptions from 3 March 2018.
This means from 3 March 2018, we’ll no longer be able to support payment for some 3rd party (non-Telstra) PDB digital content, apps or services (including subscriptions) through Premium Direct Billing. If you have any concerns about any PDB charges on your account, please call us on 13 22 00.
Will all content be affected?
No. This change only impacts 3rd party (non-Telstra) services and subscriptions. The following Telstra content will be unaffected, and will continue to be charged to your Post-Paid Telstra bill, or debited from your Pre-Paid credit balance as normal:
- AirG Chat
- Apple App Store
- Apple Music
- BigPond Movies
- Google Play (post-paid customers only)
- Infocall services
- Telstra Mobile Fun
- Telstra reverse call
- 1800 Reverse
- Caller Tones
- Windows Store
- Premium SMS Content
- Other Telstra content
What’s next for you?
If you have any concerns about any PDB charges on your account, please call us on 13 22 00.
If you've bought something from a third party service provider using your Post-Paid Telstra mobile bill, it'll show up under ‘Third Party Purchases’. Please see Telstra bill example below.

What is Premium Direct Billing?
Premium Direct Billing is a payment option that lets you subscribe to, or make one-off purchases of, third party (non-Telstra) content like apps, music, eBooks and movies or TV shows from other providers on your mobile phone or tablet. The charges are added to your Post-Paid Telstra bill or debited from your Pre-Paid credit balance.
From March 3 2018 you will no longer be able to access third party (non-Telstra) Premium Direct Billing services. This change will not impact all content. Please refer to the list provided above to see what you will still be able to access.
Who is actually providing me with the content under Premium Direct Billing?
Even though the charges appear on your Post-Paid Telstra bill, or are debited from your Pre-Paid credit balance, the content has been provided by a third party as a non-Telstra service. That’s why on Post-Paid bills it will be listed underneath a title that says “Third Party Purchases”.
How will charges appear on my Post-Paid bill?
Premium Direct Billing charges incurred before 3 March 2018 will appear on your Telstra Post-Paid bill.
If you see additional charges on your Post-Paid bill (under Third Party/Separate Purchases), or money debited from your Pre-Paid account, it means we paid the content provider on your behalf then recover the cost on your mobile bill.
Please see Telstra Post-Paid bill example below.
It’s convenient for me to use my Telstra bill. Why can’t I continue?
We’re committed to providing outstanding service for all our customers.
Because we can’t always provide comprehensive and direct support for Third Party (non-Telstra) services, we will no longer provide these services via our bills.
