Feb. 28, 2011
BilltoMobile, a provider of mobile payments for web purchases, recently announced a Direct Mobile Billing Gateway Service Provider agreement with Sprint that will enable Sprint customers to charge online purchases directly to their Sprint bill. Merchants and payment resellers using BilltoMobile’s mobile payment service will be able to offer this payment option to Sprint customers in a few months, the company said. ”Partnering with Sprint represents a major milestone for BilltoMobile, as it expands our reach to a vast majority of wireless subscribers in the U.S.,” said Denise Archer, vice president of carrier partnerships, BilltoMobile. “BilltoMobile is the only mobile payments gateway that can offer online digital goods and services merchants the technology infrastructure and broad consumer reach necessary to provide customers with a viable mobile payment option.” The company said its agreement with Sprint extends BilltoMobile’s overall reach to more than 240 million wireless subscribers in the U.S. across multiple carriers. Purchases are completed using a two-step authentication process, and customers don’t have to expose any sensitive account information while using the service.
