Santa Clara (Vocus) October 26, 2010
PlaySpan, the global leader in monetizing online games, social networks, virtual worlds and videos, announced today a partnership with PayPal to integrate PayPal X into its recently launched Video Monetization Platform.
The first PlaySpan Video Monetization Platform integration to go live with PayPal X is on the PlaySpan Marketplace (PSM), where user generated commerce is transacted over virtual currency, virtual goods, games and videos.
"We're extremely excited about working with PayPal X to make PlaySpan's in-video micropayments platform even more accessible to our media clients and providing them global reach to our gaming audience of millions of users,” Karl Mehta, CEO, PlaySpan.
To experience PayPal on PSM, visit store.playspan.com/videos-landing and select from a variety of videos in the platform's cinematic best of the web video showcase. PlaySpan’s marketplace currently features popular programming from internet television network Revision3, Emmy-winning Fun Little Movies, and YouTube sensations Blame Society Films and ChadMattandRob, with many others soon to be announced.
Mehta added, “Now, with just one click, viewers can pay to stream premium entertainment using their PayPal account. Content publishers can also opt to be paid by PayPal making the entire purchase process frictionless and fun."
On the heels of the partnership, PlaySpan is offering a holiday code, 1111-1111-XMASPAYPAL-236959, for free UPoints to the first 1000 people who want to enjoy the video pay-per-view experience on PlaySpan Marketplace.
