Payvia Signs New Direct-Billing Clients Including Skype

April 29, 2013

Direct-carrier-billing technology provider payvia late last week unveiled a trio of new partnerships it said points to “impressive growth.” Online careers community Bright, social video provider OnCam and VOIP pioneer Skype now are using payvia’s platform enabling their customers to charge their purchases to a mobile phone bill.

“The direct carrier billing market is exploding and set to be worth $11.6 billion by 2016, driven in large part by the demand for fast payment options from consumers buying digital content on mobile devices,” said Darcy Wedd, CEO of payvia. “Our sophisticated carrier billing platform lets us customize checkout solutions and create new revenue streams for all types of digital goods and online services merchants, all while offering a better revenue split than the app stores.”
