Polish digital games marketplace launches direct carrier billing with Fortumo
Digital games marketplace Kinguin, mobile operator Orange and mobile payments company Fortumo have announced the launch of hosted direct carrier billing in Poland. Kinguin can now collect payments from customers using the most advanced features of carrier billing — including dynamic pricing, two-step charging and automated refunds, according to a press release.
Hosted direct carrier billing from Fortumo provides merchants with a turnkey product to collect payments from their users. In the backend, Hosted direct carrier billing is directly connected with advanced mobile operator APIs used by leading digital merchants such as Google and Spotify, according to the announcement.
As a result, merchants can launch direct carrier billing for their customers without needing to negotiate a launch with each carrier, develop and maintain checkout flows or manage end-user support.
The launch will also include a joint marketing campaign by Kinguin and Orange to promote hosted direct carrier billing to gamers as a payment method.
