Fortumo Releases Cross-Platform Mobile Payments for HTML5 Apps

We are really excited to let you know that we have launched cross-platform mobile payments service for HTML5-supported apps.

No, no. Mobile world is not just divided between Android and iOS. More and more developers are taking cross-platform strategy in order to optimize development cost, minimize time to market and reduce platform risk.

Namely because of the above-mentioned, we have developed closely with some of our top merchant a seamless payment solution, which has less clicks for end users, by using data already stored on a device, and payments can be completed in less clicks than on the conventional web.

Upgraded Pay by Mobile enables app and game developers to monetize users of mobile web apps, on any mobile device, with single integration. The cross-platform system is optimized for mobile browsers integrated with iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Symbian, Java and Bada, including tablet devices.

Key Advantages:

  • Cross Platform: optimized for all key mobile browsers in iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Symbian, Java and Bada, including tablet devices. One single integration for developers, providing the widest possible reach.
  • Less Clicks: by using data already stored on a device, payment can be completed in less clicks than on conventional web.
  • Mobile Operator Billing: strong alternative to credit cards, especially in emerging markets. Mobile billing works for over 3 billion mobile users worldwide without a need to register or have a credit card.

With this upgrade Pay by Mobile is now truly a cross-platform payments tool which looses the barriers between pc and mobile. For developers it is 1 single integration, but the whole use experience on clients’ side depends on which device the service is consumed.
