Why was WhatsApp an instant success
Confirmed: WhatsApp for Android is now chargeable
WhatsApp: Please pay
Screenshot: teltarif.de For a long time it was just a rumor that haunted the forums: WhatsApp for Android is chargeable. Right from the start, the messaging provider had pointed out when downloading the app under Android that it was only free for use in the first year. From the second onwards, users have to pay. For most of them, the problem is not so much the low amount of 99 US cents (less than 80 cents) per year, but the non-existent possibility of payment. The teltarif.de editors are now aware of the first users who were asked by WhatsApp for (immediate) payment. WhatsApp: Please pay
Seven days before the end of the usage period, the user will be informed by a pop-up that his usage period will end shortly. He is asked if he wants to buy an extension and can answer this question with "yes" or "no". The problem with this: From the moment this pop-up appears, WhatsApp can no longer be used, at least in the version offered until yesterday, because some functions such as sending a message no longer work. Only when the extension was carried out could the app be used again as usual. Recently, however, an update was released for this bug, so that the last seven days can also be used.
Android users can check the app when their own usage period ends. To do this, they open WhatsApp and can see the end of their current usage time via the items "Account" and "Payment information". For example, anyone who previously used WhatsApp via iPhone has a "lifelong" right of use.
This is how you can pay for WhatsApp

Screenshot: teltarif.de WhatsApp uses the in-app payment method. This means that the user pays from the app via the Google Play Store and not when installing the app. The payment options offered by Google are used. This is primarily a credit card that must be deposited with Google accordingly. This is also possible via the app at the moment when the extension is to be paid for.
However, many users do not have a credit card. However, they may be able to pay on the Play Store through their carrier. This is possible, for example, for customers of Telekom (including congstar), Vodafone and o2, but there can be problems with some discounters and providers. Customers are automatically shown whether payment by cell phone bill is possible when they decide to pay.
A third variant, which still allows payment via PayPal, although it was removed from WhatsApp in the official app in January, is shown by Androidpit. To do this, the app must be uninstalled and reinstalled via the WhatsApp homepage. Payment via PayPal is possible again here.
