Sportito has partnered with Boku, mobile payments platform. Boku will make it easier for Sportito users to deposit through their mobiles. With Boku, the customers can use only their personal phone number to make the deposits, without the use of any bankcard. Boku’s carrier billing solution will be an alternative payment method for the users who do not want to use their bankcard online due to the high risk of frauds in online payments. Hence, paying through their mobile carrier is a great alternative for the customers.
Boku is the world’s ‘largest independent carrier billing company’ and their platform is used in many top companies such as Google, Microsoft, Windows, Sony and Facebook. With their ultimate goal to turn carrier billing into the ultimate alternative payment method, they will also be expanding beyond digital goods.
Partnership between Sportito and Boku will be a great advancement for Sportito platform. On Sportito, apart from the free entry contests, some of the contests require a small entry fee and that’s when the customer should make a deposit to their account. To facilitate this process, Sportito’s partnership with Boku will be of great advantage.
Riccardo Mittiga, CEO of Sportito comments on the partnership, “At Sportito, our philosophy has always been ‘customer first’ and we can think of no better way to add value to our customers than giving them new options and opportunities to win real money while playing fantasy sports,”. He added, “Boku is an amazing partner with strong relationships with carriers in the UK and across Europe, making it incredibly easy for us to deliver these new payment methods to millions of new fans quickly and securely.”
Jeremy Arnold, Senior Director of Boku said, “One thing that remains consistent across Boku’s network of merchant partners, from the world’s largest music streaming services to the world’s most popular app stores, is a dedication to high quality mobile experiences for consumers – Sportito shares that dedication. This partnership also shows the broad appeal of carrier billing and its ability to bring in new consumers, increase revenue, and give mobile-first consumers a payment alternative that matches their seamless experience with cards.”
