Boku, a global mobile payments company headquartered in San Francisco has announced a partnership with 3 Hong Kong, the mobile division of Hutchison Hong Kong. Through the new partnership with Boku, 3 Hong Kong subscribers will be able to make purchases on their mobile devices using their mobile phone numbers. At checkout, users choose an item they want to purchase, enter their mobile numbers, and confirm the purchase via text and their items are then billed to their mobile accounts.
Jennifer Tan, Chief Operating Officer of HTHKH
We are happy to extend our direct carrier billing service with Boku. With in-app purchases charged to a customer’s mobile bill, this eliminates the need to pass on credit information and so offers customers peace of mind.
Kurt Davis, General Manager of Boku in Asia
3 Hong Kong is one of the respected names in the region and a tremendous partner for Boku. The mobile consumer market in Hong Kong spends a lot on value added services and by working together we are capitalizing on new opportunities for carrier billing.
