boxPAY expands into US

In the US

The Irish mobile payments provider is setting up in San Francisco and offering its mobile billing services to the US and Canadian markets (view press release). US and Canadian e-tailors can now use boxPAY’s service to bill in over forty countries around the world. The service enables web merchants to charge customers for digital content through their mobile phones as opposed to a credit/debit card. Customers can make purchases from an e-tailer website without having to register and the charge is then added to their mobile phone bill or deducted from a prepaid balance. Payments can be made via SMS or direct carrier through the company’s connections with US mobile operators.

Co–founder Iain McConnon says “with our connections in the US and Canada, this brings the number of countries boxPAY is available in to over 40. With our eye on Asia next, we hope to be in over 60 countries by Q3.”

The boxPAY mobile billing service is compatible with the Android platform and subscription billing. It can also be used to make in-game purchases with Flash games.
