Fortumo, the international mobile payment provider, recently announced its partnership with Spotify to introduce carrier billing program specifically for Spotify users in Indonesia and Philippines.
Spotify uses Fortumo’s Payments API which allows merchants to take advantage of the bigger reach of carrier billing while preserving features of card-based payment processing such as free trial support, flexible pricing and control over the billing cycle. Merchant-branded checkout flows supported by the API increase user trust during the checkout process and authenticating the user over a data connection means payments can be completed in a few seconds.
In recent news from the region, Fortumo announced a partnership with Indosat in Indonesia. As part of the Spotify network, Fortumo also works with Smart and Globe in the Philippines.
