Bango has extended its carrier billing routes for app store partners in several additional markets providing added reach for the Bango Payment Platform to service mobile app monetization needs of the growing global app store economy.
The Bango Platform enables one-click mobile payment, acting as a single point of integration for app stores and mobile network operators, providing the ability to deploy carrier billing on a large scale. Bango enables app publishers to increase their sales by making payment easier, faster and universally available through a single platform technology.
In May Bango offered new launches in Latin America and now its carrier billing platform is available for the following regions:
- Samsung GALAXYTM Apps that subscribe to O2 in Germany and Movistar (Telefónica) in Spain
- Google PlayTM that subscribe to Taiwan Star and XL in Indonesia
- Windows Phone Store that subscribe to Umniah in Jordan, Movistar in Mexico and in the UK
With these new territories, Bango now offers carrier billing in more than 140 markets globally.
