Mobile payments company Fortumo has announced that it has launched subscription payments using carrier billing for Windows Phone and Windows 8. Developers building apps for these Microsoft platforms can now increase their subscription payment coverage by enabling carrier billing for users without credit cards in 83 markets.
Fortumo is currently rolling out subscriptions country-by-country. With the initial launch, app developers can start using recurring billing through mobile payments in 20 countries, including Brazil, France, United Kingdom, Sweden, Romania, and India, with a total reach of over 1 billion end-users.
Fortumo in-app purchasing SDK for Windows and Windows Phone apps only requires the user to have a mobile phone to complete payments with no additional registration or credit card required. The SDK supports the sale of single items, virtual credits and subscriptions.
The Windows Phone 8.0 and Windows Phone 8.1 versions of the SDK can be used in C# projects and the Windows Phone 8.1 version can also be consumed from C++ projects. Fortumo also provides carrier billing for developers using Unity 3D or Cocos2d-x. The SDK supports over 40 currencies and is localized into 32 languages.
Mobile operator billing with Fortumo is designed to complement Microsoft’s payment solution. For Windows Store, Fortumo provides mobile payments in 83 countries and over 300 mobile networks. For Windows Phone Store, Fortumo extends Microsoft’s existing mobile operator billing reach by adding a number of emerging markets in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia, Middle-East and Africa with low credit card penetration.
