Boku is the payment provider for operator transactions from América Móvil (Telcel). To receive payments for app and in-app purchases from the supported operators you'll need to create a Boku account, bearing in mind that any existing Boku account you may have cannot be used. This page provides a quick start and long guide to the sign up process, as well as links to the relevant pages to complete the process.
