Plymouth, England (PRWEB) September 25, 2009
txtNation and eBIZ.mobility Ltd. today announced a partnership that enables customers in 63 countries to purchase digital products and pay for them through their mobile phone accounts. Over 200 Mobile Network Operators worldwide can now be used to clear web payments via eBIZ.mobility's OneTouch Online Purchasing payment system.
The partnership between eBIZ.mobility and txtNation provides a bridge between e-commerce sites and the familiarity of mobile billing mechanisms, enabling merchants to increase sales by allowing customers to pay through their mobile phone accounts.
OneTouch Online Purchasing enables merchants to process more sales by enabling customers to charge online purchases directly to existing accounts at their phone company, Internet provider or bank, or by using a pre-paid or gift card. With OneTouch Online Purchasing's Facebook widget, developers are able to use mobile payments to reach new customers.
According to a 2008 study by Javelin Strategy and Research, over 75% of consumers would prefer to add small online purchases to their existing telephone, broadband or mobile bills as an alternative to using credit or debit cards.
According to Jeremy Kagan, eBIZ.mobility's CEO, the key to success in online sales is providing customers with easy-to-use, readily-available payment options that they are comfortable using.
"OneTouch Online Purchasing is very excited to extend its trusted payment clearing options to hundreds of mobile operators around the world. We chose txtNation as a partner for our mobile billing option because of their wide geographical reach and excellent reputation. Through a single simple OneTouch API that plugs-in to a shopping cart or payment page, merchants can monetize customers' impulse purchases from every corner of the globe and from a variety of alternative payment mechanisms without interfering with merchants' other payment options. This translates into more sales from the existing infrastructure," said Kagan.
Mike Whelan, founder of txtNation added, "OneTouch Online Purchasing adds a whole new dimension to txtNation's mENABLE product. By interfacing mENABLE to OneTouch, txtNation brings its large network of mobile operators to bear on the Facebook Application Developer community as well as other web merchants of digital goods and services where OneTouch is strong."
