BilltoMobile Launches One-Click Mobile Web

MocoSpace Is the First to Go Live With the New Optimized Subscriber Process

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - BilltoMobile, the leader in Direct Carrier Billing for mobile payments, announced today the availability of one-click processing for Mobile Web transactions on its Direct Carrier Billing (DCB) platform. This simplified payment flow makes it faster and easier for consumers to make purchases from their mobile phones without sacrificing security.

BilltoMobile's deeper integration with US carrier networks enables it to identify a wireless subscriber's phone number when they make purchases through Mobile Web on their handsets. In a one-screen user flow, a user is asked to accept the Carrier's Terms of Use via an opt-in check box and then to opt in a second time on the same screen by confirming the exact amount to be charged to the network-identified phone number. BilltoMobile's proprietary risk and fraud system, which already processes billions of dollars in mobile payment transactions annually in the US and Korea, ensures the security of the purchase is maintained.

Mobile Web is increasingly becoming a key focus for developers. A recent survey by Appcelerator and IDC shows that 66% of the developers rate Mobile Web support as a top priority for 2012. BilltoMobile's one-click purchase flow will help developers to accelerate revenue through direct carrier billing. Merchants will continue to leverage BilltoMobile's easy to integrate RESTful API. They do not need to code to any additional APIs.

"We are excited to be introducing this elegant new functionality on a major carrier with MocoSpace. We have been working closely with all of the carriers on this one-click process, and we expect all of the Top 4 carriers will be providing this same service soon," explained Paris Leung, Vice President of Sales at BilltoMobile, "Offering such a simple and easy payment flow for consumers translates directly to higher revenue. We have seen this proven out in other geographic areas of the world. We are very excited to be the first DCB platform in the US to offer one-click mobile web processing."

"Direct billing is key to our virtual currency based mobile social gaming community, and with Billtomobile we've been able to provide a seamless payment experience," said Jamie Hall, MocoSpace Co-founder & CTO.
