Europe’s leading provider of digital parking services EasyPark Group and Fortumo are launching direct carrier billing in Slovenia.

Drivers in the country can now easily charge parking fees to their Telekom Slovenije, A1 or Telemach mobile phone bill. Slovenia is the fourth country where EasyPark and Fortumo will be working together on mobile payments for parking, with Finland, Norway and Sweden launched last year.

Carrier billing makes paying for parking services easier for drivers as they do not need to visit a payment terminal or purchase parking permits upfront. Instead, after finding a spot for their car, drivers can simply confirm parking through their mobile phone. After finishing parking, Fortumo adds the fee for parking to their next month’s phone bill or deducts it from their prepaid SIM card.

The direct carrier billing launch in Slovenia for EasyPark was done through Fortumo’s Payments API. Since an existing integration with Fortumo was already in place for Scandinavia, EasyPark did not need to do any additional development on their side and the launch was managed by Fortumo. EasyPark provides parking services in 13 European countries and the two companies are working together to launch additional markets soon.

For companies providing smart city solutions and local municipalities, there is also the added benefit of cutting down on infrastructure costs in managing parking solutions as the entire payment requires users only to have their mobile phone at hand.
