Boku announces mobile payments partnership with U.S. Cellular

Boku

Providing mobile payments solution

Online payments firm BOKU has announced a partnership with U.S. Cellular to maximize the adoption of direct-to-bill mobile operator billing as a payment option. BOKU is one of the first payments providers to integrate and launch with U.S. Cellular to provide mobile payments for the carrier’s postpaid customers across 26 states.

Online merchants will generate incremental revenue from consumers who find mobile the easiest way to pay online, and attract new consumers who previously were unable or chose not to pay via other payment options, such as credit and debit accounts. Consumers simply enter their phone number to checkout, and respond via text message to confirm the payment with the charges appearing on their wireless bill.

Kevin Grant, Senior Vice President of Sales at BOKU commented: “With U.S. Cellular we are connecting to a powerful direct billing API that supports advanced features that benefit our merchant partners. U.S. Cellular is a top tier partner for BOKU and together we’re able to deliver a top of the line experience by merging our technologies and proficiency.”

U.S. Cellular postpaid subscribers can immediately begin paying online with their mobile account at participating online merchants.
