More than 15 million Play subscribers can now purchase leading digital games, in-game content and software from Kinguin’s marketplace by conveniently charging the payments to their mobile phone bill.
For Kinguin’s customers, paying with carrier billing is very simple. After selecting the product which they wish to purchase, they only need to enter their phone number and confirm the payment through a PIN code. Customers do not need to sign up for any additional accounts or enter their personal information to pay through Fortumo. Instead, the fee is charged to their mobile phone bill which means even those people without a bank account are able to make payments.
This payments product gives merchants access to the latest and most advanced technology made available by telecom companies (including dynamic pricing and automated refunds).
At the same time, merchants don’t need to invest time into localization or compliance of the checkout flows as they are managed by Fortumo and localized for each country. Kinguin has been using Hosted DCB to collect payments from mobile users in Poland since June 2017.
