To launch direct carrier billing across Pakistan, Telenor has joined hands with a mobile payment company named Fortumo. In Pakistan, there are oven 35 million Telenor customers who will be capable to make online payments by charging purchases to their phone bill after the success of this deal.
The quick transfer of the money has been made easier for Telenor customers by the direct carrier billing service and mobile payment. With their beloved mobile network of Telenor, they can make payments very easily now.
As there is very less access available to the Pakistani people, therefore, merchants are currently and continuously missing giant revenue out from the emerging markets of the country. A mobile phone for carrier billing will be the only requirement with this mobile payment by Telenor and Fortumo.
Not only this, many opportunities will be provided to the developer too as they can initiate purchases from the clients by direct billing because Telenor has also included Fortumo in app purchasing in Telenor App Store. In Telenor app store, games from developers like Gameloft, GLU Mobile and Creative Mobile are also included. Not only this, Fortumo’s Android SDK can be used in addition to Telenor App Store in dozens of other Android marketplaces with single integration.
A global framework agreement is signed by Fortumo with Telenor Group earlier in 2014 in which, 12 countries in Europe and Asia are covered. In the continuance of that agreement, the latest arrangement is done.
