Southeast Asia’s leading entertainment service, iflix, and Fortumo announced the launch of Fortumo’s Hosted DCB to enable all iflix customers in Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Thailand and Pakistan to pay for iflixVIP through their mobile operator.
In addition to the existing monthly and annual subscriptions to iflixVIP, customers can now also purchase 'sachet' packages with smaller one-time or recurring payments to gain access to the premium iflix service for lengths as short as a single day, offering customers greater flexibility and convenience. The wide availability of carrier billing (any prepaid or postpaid mobile customer can make payments) combined with new sachet pricing will help iflix reach a wider consumer audience.
iflix uses Fortumo’s Hosted DCB product to collect payments from its customers. This gives iflix the capability to connect to telcos’ direct carrier billing infrastructure through one integration with Fortumo, while taking advantage of features including dynamic pricing and automated refunds.
