Fortumo Launches In-App Payments for Windows Phone

March 28, 2013

At a conference for game developers taking place this week in San Francisco, mobile payments provider Fortumo said it has launched in-app payments for Windows Phone. The company said the move makes it the only third-party provider that can support payments across all Microsoft devices. Game and app developers can use a single SDK to activate payments on desktops, tablets and phones running on Windows operating systems.

“With Windows Phone we are seeing a repetition of what happened when Android launched –developers who were initially cautious in porting their apps to the new operating system are starting to see Windows Phone as a viable source of revenue,” said Martin Koppel, co-founder and chief revenue officer of Fortumo. “Our goal is to help developers who are making the move to Windows Phone easily monetize their users globally and with a more broadly accessible, higher converting payment method than credit cards.”
