U.K. On-Demand Movie Service Chooses PayWizard

Sept. 8, 2011

FilmFlex Movies, a London-based online movie service used by Film4oD, has added PayWizard as an online payment mechanism. The companies said the first deployment of the PayWizard e-wallet is now live on the Film4oD website. The e-wallet holds digital versions of credit/debit cards, the current balance, and various personal data. It facilitates continual card authorization for what PayWizard calls “true single-click purchases.” Jamie Mackinlay, commercial director at PayWizard, said: “As the provider of a high quality online movie streaming service to some of the UK’s best-known brands, FilmFlex Movies wanted to deliver a new type of payment experience that is fast, easy to use and friction-free. The PayWizard e-wallet fits the bill because it supports true single-click purchases and enables FilmFlex Movies’ customers to experiment with a range of different payment models in addition to pay-per-movie.” PayWizard said FilmFlex Movies is the sixth customer to deploy the PayWizard multi-screen payment platform since the beginning of the year.
