Fortumo Brings Direct-Carrier Billing to Payelp Merchants

Jan. 9, 2014

masterpass-eur Payelp, a Los Angeles-based e-commerce merchant services provider, has teamed up with Fortumo to offer direct-carrier billing as an option for Payelp merchants. Fortumo is based in San Francisco, but enables one-click mobile payments charged to users’ phone bill in 79 countries, with emphasis on emerging markets in Latin America, Middle East, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe and Asia.

“Mobile payments bring the biggest revenue to merchants from countries where few people have credit cards,” said Fortumo CEO Rain Rannu. “Our common expertise in emerging markets with Payelp will help more merchants earn additional revenue through operator billing.”
