March 12, 2012

Direct carrier biller mopay has been chosen by Wargaming.net as its alternative payment solution of choice. Users on Wargaming.net, an award-winning developer and publisher of popular massively multiplayer online (MMO) games, make in-game purchases of the virtual currency "Gold,” which they use to buy virtual goods like tanks or other weapons. mopay will enable gamers to pay for their “Gold” by directly billing an available telecom account.

“mopay allows us to monetize our free-to-play online games via a very popular channel among our international target groups—mobile and landline phones,” says Nick Katselapov, chief business development officer of Wargaming.net. “Our global presence and the worldwide recognition of World of Tanks drove our decision to find a mobile payments solution with global coverage while also accounting for regional differences.”
