The digital games marketplace Kinguin, the mobile operator Orange and the mobile payments company Fortumo have partnered to launch a Hosted Direct Carrier Billing (HDCB) in Poland.

With this, Kinguin can now collect payments from its users using the most advanced features of carrier billing including dynamic pricing, 2-step charging and automated refunds. 

HDCB is a payment product by Fortumo providing merchants with a turnkey solution to collect payments from their users. In the back-end, HDCB is directly connected with the most advanced mobile operator APIs, used by leading digital merchants such as Google and Spotify. This gives merchants payments capability on par with credit cards in terms of flexibility and technology: for example the capability to predefine any amount for charging. 

As a result, merchants can launch direct carrier billing for their customers without needing to negotiate a launch with every carrier separately, develop and maintain checkout flows or manage end-user support. 

The launch will also include a joint marketing campaign by Kinguin and Orange to promote Hosted DCB as a payment method to gamers. 

Lukasz Perzynski, Head of Premium Rate, Orange Poland
The ability to add Kinguin's mobile payments to Orange mobile accounts is another convenience for all our customers who enjoy spending time playing and buying online.

Andrea Boetti, VP of Global Business Development, Fortumo 
Fortumo’s goal is to bring together merchants who want the best payment experience for their customers with innovative mobile operators increasing the quality and capabilities of carrier billing.
