MUNICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--mopay, a global leader in innovative payment solutions for online merchants, announced today that it has been reconfirmed as preferred payment partner for Gameforge, one of the leading providers of high-quality online games. mopay has received top scores in Gameforge’s evaluation of mobile payment providers and will thus continue to process a significant proportion of Gameforge’s global mobile payment transactions.
mopay provides direct carrier, landline and broadband billing options for online merchants in more than 80 countries through its industry-leading payments platform. Implemented in Gameforge’s offers, mopay enables players to easily, quickly and securely make in-game purchases, allowing them to buy virtual goods in its AAA game portfolio. The purchases will be billed directly to any available telecommunications account. Since mopay only requires a mobile phone number, landline phone number, or a broadband account, consumers using mopay are more likely to complete a transaction than consumers using a credit card for the purchasing process.
With an impressive portfolio of some 20 online games and over 380 million registered players, Gameforge is one of the leading providers of massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) in the western world. Based in Karlsruhe, Germany, the internationally active company offers its games in more than 50 languages. The portfolio contains client-based games, as well as browser-based online games.
Since 2005, Gameforge has chosen mopay as a preferred provider in the area of mobile payments. After an intensive market screening as part of the internal optimization, the company reconfirmed the close partnership with mopay. Eight potential suppliers were benchmarked against mopay in categories, such as customer care, cost, tax compliance, clearing and settlement, graphical user interface (GUI), fraud prevention, and many more.
"We are delighted that Gameforge re-affirmed mopay’s superior service against almost all of our global challengers. The breadth and depth of the analysis were impressive, so this decision really means a lot to us," said Ingo Lippert, global CEO of mopay.
Andreas Schulze, payment product director from Gameforge adds, "We are very pleased that after a rigorous analysis, mopay has proven to be a good choice for our platform and are happy to continue our successful cooperation."
