“In-app purchasing has become the industry standard business model for mobile games. In partnership with Fortumo, we are now making this seamless payment solution available to HTML5 developers as well. Mobile web games have tremendous growth opportunities ahead and developers can now easily take advantage of this,” said
“There are over 4 billion people in the world who do not have a credit card but who are able to make payments online using carrier billing. Because the payment flow of carrier billing is much more seamless, carrier billing outperforms credit cards in terms of conversion, especially on mobile devices,” added
TreSensa has initially rolled out mobile payments for its www.mobilewebarcade.com gaming portal. Developers publishing their HTML5 apps through TreSensa do not need to do any additional integration for in-app purchasing as mobile payments are available across the entire TreSensa platform. In total, TreSensa has partnered with over 100 different mobile gaming portals for HTML5 app distribution.
