disney plus payment methods

Credit Card

The following credit cards can be used for Disney Plus.

    • JCB
    • VISA
    • MasterCard
    • American Express
    • Diners Club

Carrier payment by docomo is available.

If you enroll in disney plus via docomo, you can enjoy a variety of special campaigns, exclusive contents, and special services.

In addition, DOCOMO's unique carrier payment system is available, which is very convenient for those who do not have a credit card (for DOCOMO users).

Even if you do not have a DOCOMO line, you can join via DOCOMO if you have a d-account. The payment method will be credit card.

If you choose carrier payment, the Disney Plus fee will be combined with your phone bill. You can easily make the payment by logging into your d-account that you have a line contract with docomo and entering the PIN that you set when you made the contract.

This is a docomo only service since Disney Plus is jointly operated by the Walt Disney Company and NTT Docomo. au, Softbank, and low-cost SIMs are not supported.

When you pay by carrier, you can accumulate docomo d-points according to the amount you pay. Also, if you double enroll in Disney plus and dTV, there is a campaign going on right now to give away an additional 1,500 d-points.

Anyway, this payment method seems to be a good deal for docomo users.

PayPal

To make PayPal payments, you need to open a PayPal account.

In-app purchases (Apple, Google, Amazon)

When you enroll in an app, you can use the payment methods registered with the various apps. Basically, credit cards are accepted, so you can think of it as linking your credit card to the app.
