Why should I use mobile operator billing?

There are 5 times more mobile phones in the world compared to credit cards. In emerging markets, less than 20% of the people have a credit card - this also means 80% of your app users are currently not able to make payments to you. Fortumo enables any phone owner to make payments by charging the purchases to their phone bill. Combining Fortumo operator billing with official Windows store in-app billing guarantees that anyone who wants to make payments to you is able to do so.
