Telefónica & Telenor: bringing mobile payments to 460M new users

Today we are proud to announce partnerships with globally leading mobile operator groups Telefónica and Telenor to bring simple, one-click mobile payments to users in more than 30 countries.

Developers using Fortumo can now connect directly to 460 million users through the BlueVia Payments API which provides a true one-click experience to users purchasing goods over the web, in Android, Windows 8 and Windows Phone apps. More importantly, most of these users are located in markets which lack heavily in credit cards (e.g. Telefonica’s markets in Latin-America and Telenor’s markets in Asia), making mobile payments the perfect method to charge users for digital goods.

We are very glad to cooperate with Telefonica and Telenor for direct carrier billing and believe that through initiatives such as BlueVia, simple mobile payments can be brought to many more developers and end-users. You can read my overview of what new capabilities direct carrier billing will bring to mobile payments in the upcoming years over at Billing & OSS World.
