Mobile payment solution provider mopay announced an offering that will enable merchants to bill purchases directly to consumers land line phone accounts.
“Today, mopay sets the pace in the mobile payments industry and provides a global billing system tailored to meet the unique needs of online merchants,” said Kolja Reiss, Managing Director of mopay Inc. “With mopay call, we are solidifying and expanding our market position and establishing mopay as the global leader in innovative alternative payment options.”
The solutions works as you might expect. When users select mopay during checkout, a mopay payment screen prompts the shoppers to authorize the purchase through an automated call. Mopay then places the charge to the land line phone account and the purchase is completed. The best part for consumers is that no registration is required.
German-based Travian Games is among the first to extend its payment options with mopay call. Travian operates in more than 50 countries and its games are played by over 5.2 million active gamers worldwide.
“When we integrated the mopay platform several years ago, we were able to monetize a uniquely new target group – the unbanked and underserved,” said Florian Bohn, CEO at Travian Games. “Historically, mopay has had a major impact on our revenue stream and we are already seeing significant contributions from mopay call. The commitment and dedication to innovation that is inherent at mopay affirms our decision to partner with this experienced industry leader for cutting-edge payment solutions.”
