Android Users Bill Digital Purchases to Any Phone Number with PaymentOne
Feb. 28, 2011
PaymentOne Corp., a provider of phone-enabled payments for landline, broadband, and mobile carrier billing, demonstrated its integrated mobile payment solution for Android at a recent trade show in Barcelona. The PayOne Android solution enables consumers to use any one of their phone numbers to securely pay for applications, in-game extras, and related digital services. Consumers experience a seamless payment solution without leaving the application or game, and unlike alternatives, no credit card, pre-registration or account signup is required. “Publishers and Developers are looking for simple open solutions that enable direct monetization of their applications in multiple distribution channels,” said Joe Lynam, President and CEO of PaymentOne. “We have been successfully partnering with digital merchants to monetize their services for over 10 years, and as every screen becomes a point of sale, from smart phones to tablets, and personal computers to TVs, our focus is to continue to provide payment services across all types of applications and devices that allow simple, safe and secure payments.” Over 150,000 applications have been developed and are being broadly distributed on and off of the Android Marketplace, and market analysts project this market to exceed $6 billion in the next 3 years.
