Carrier billing makes paying for parking services easier for drivers as they do not need to visit a payment terminal or purchase parking permits upfront. Instead, after finding a spot for their car, drivers can simply confirm parking through their mobile phone. After finishing parking, Fortumo adds the fee for parking to their next month’s phone bill or deducts it from their prepaid SIM card.

“Paying for parking with carrier billing gives the greatest convenience to locals and makes it accessible to anyone. For companies providing smart city solutions and local municipalities, there is also the added benefit of cutting down on infrastructure costs in managing parking solutions as the entire payment requires users only to have their mobile phone at hand. We are excited to bring these benefits to EasyPark and their users in Slovenia and look forward to growing our partnership,” said Andrea Boetti, VP of Global Business Development at Fortumo.

The direct carrier billing launch in Slovenia for EasyPark was done through Fortumo’s Payments API. Since an existing integration with Fortumo was already in place for Scandinavia, EasyPark did not need to do any additional development on their side and the launch was managed by Fortumo. EasyPark provides parking services in 13 European countries and the two companies are working together to launch additional markets soon.

Besides EasyPark, Fortumo’s direct carrier billing platform is used by Google Play, Spotify, iflix, Sony, Schibsted, HOOQ, Gaana, EA Mobile, Gameloft, Kinguin and thousands of other merchants. One integration with the platform enables merchants to collect payments from subscribers of more than 350 mobile operators.

Fortumo launches PayRead, the frictionless payment solution for digital publishers

The mobile technology company Fortumo is today announcing the launch of PayRead. PayRead lets digital publishers identify and charge users through their SIM card, the most widely available digital identity globally. PayRead reaches more than 3.1 billion consumers in 100+ countries and gives publishers the tools to get rid of friction in their paywalls.

Fortumo launches PayRead, the frictionless payment solution for digital publishers

“Digital newspaper income is shifting from advertising to consumer revenue and publishers are looking for ways to simplify the user acquisition and payment process. Card-based paywalls create friction because users need to go through several steps and enter personal data to access premium content. PayRead provides a seamless approach to authentication and charging for content, making it easier for readers to support their favourite publication,” said Andrea Boetti, Head of PayRead at Fortumo.

PayRead is integrated with 350 mobile operators whose users can access digital publications through their mobile account identity. Should the reader wish to pay for digital content, the same account is used for recurring payments, contributions, enabling metered access and purchasing individual articles.

Readers do not have to log into any separate accounts, download a payment app or share their personal details: the registration and payment are instead completed through a PIN verification sent by the mobile operator. “Our existing digital publishing partners see higher conversion with PayRead because the solution is more user-friendly, simpler and safer compared to card-based paywalls,” added Andrea Boetti.

One integration with PayRead gives digital publishers global reach and provides a native flow for all platforms (web, mobile web and apps) with the user flow white-labelled to increase trust and match the publisher’s brand. PayRead also gives publishers access to its Messaging API to communicate with users for transactional and marketing purposes as well as its Reporting API for integrating of transaction data into existing business intelligence tools.

PayRead is built by Fortumo, the mobile technology company working with publishers including Schibsted, Magzter and Readwhere, as well as other leading digital merchants such as Google, Spotify and Viber.
