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.
