Boku, the growing and popular direct carrier biller, announced a new agreement on Tuesday with Bigpoint SARL and Co., a huge online gaming platform out of Luxembourg.
Bigpoint, which boasts of more than 300 million players around the world, will extend the Boku mobile payment service to its gamers, lending them a new option to make virtual payments by charging their mobile phone bill.
“Adding our innovative mobile payment platform to one of the world’s leading game publishers is a massive opportunity for both Boku and Bigpoint and a tremendous added benefit to the players that love their games,” said Boku’s Martin Buhl, a company manager based in Germany.
Although Boku is based in San Francisco, California, the company has a strong global presence with offices in Europe and Latin America.
“Our experience coupled with our robust and flexible payment options will help Bigpoint reach new paying users and increase conversion while providing their customers an efficient carrier billing checkout that lets them focus on the game and not on the payment,” Buhl says.
