Are you going to be in Berlin on February 7th & 8th? That’s when the WN Conference for game developers and publishers takes place place.
We’ll be joining more than 800 participants at the event and look forward to the presentations in the conference program by Newzoo, Ubisoft, Google Play and more.
We’re going to make a prediction for the event as one of the panel discussions is titled “Fast Forward 15 Years – What Will Our Industry Look Like?”. We predict that that in the future, gamers will continue to pay for games. But how they are going to pay is rapidly evolving.
55% of gamers today are already located in the Asia Pacific. In Asia, local payment methods (including mobile wallet payments, real-time bank schemes and carrier billing) are more popular than traditional bank-based payments. A similar trend of local payments overtaking card payments is happening across other regions of the world as well.
Want to learn more about the growth and performance of these local payment methods globally? Check out our annual mobile wallets report for the growth forecast. As a spoiler, mobile wallet payment volumes today already exceed card payments globally.
If growing revenue through payments is your focus for this year, get in touch to set up a meeting. We are at the event because Fortumo provides a simple, scalable payment solution to reach gamers globally through new payment methods.
See you in Berlin!
