Centech honourly became aggregator with Mopay who takes operator billing to Vietnam for the first time
Mopay is the first global mobile payments company to sign carrier billing agreement with operator. The operator billing solution has been considered as easy and reliable purchases of digital goods that are billed through the operator phone bill. It is Centech’s pleasure to become a strategic carrier billing local partner with Mopay - a global leader in innovative payment solutions for online merchants
As most readers will know, operator billing enables digital merchants to reach consumers who don’t have (or don’t want to use) a debit/credit card.That makes it perfect for emerging markets.
Now, Mopay is taking merchants such as Gameforge, Bigpoint, Baidu, Valve and Wargaming into Vietnam. Its agreement with Operator will let billions of users transact with Mopay.
The Mopay payment process that Vietnamese users will experience is very simple. When purchasing a digital or virtual item online, consumers choose mopay as their payment method. mopay only needs a verified mobile phone number to bill the requested amount. No registration or further information is needed. All user interfaces, such as PC screens, tablets and mobile phones, are supported in order to make the payment method adapt to different usage scenarios. On a global scale, it is still the easiest way to pay for music, games, virtual items, or even tickets.
Ingo Lippert, CEO of mopay, said: “Vietnam is a very vibrant country where you can literally feel how quickly this market is evolving. We feel privileged to team up with Vietnam’s largest mobile network provider, Viettel, to take mobile payments to the next level.”
Mopay operates in more than 80 countries, reaching more than 4.3 billion consumers. Mopay now has opened the Vietnamese carrier billing market to international digital brands. Mopay decides to invest in Vietnam market based on three factors: the sheer size of the local Vietnamese mobile market, which has the eighth highest number of mobile phone subscribers in the world; the steep growth of smart phones by more than 156% over the last three years; and the openness of Vietnam’s leading carrier to fully embrace the carrier billing opportunity. Mopay will introduce its platform with a direct integration into operator’s billing platform to ensure a best-in-class user experience, as well as access to superior commercial deals currently available through its merchant base.
