Vodafone has announced that it is creating a series of APIs that will allow third party developers to create applications that will integrate with Vodafone servers globally. The APIs will allow the applications to tap into the billing system for payments.

That should mean the ability to pay for things and have it added to the Vodafone bill for the user. Vodafone has about 289 million customers in their service areas.

Vodafone is also part of the PayforIt consortium that aims to provide payment-processing capabilities across different networks allowing the gateways to take a cut of the sales price.
