Mobile payments and analytics company Bango announces that Orange smartphone customers can pay for digital goods and services through Facebook and charge the cost to their phone bill (view press release).

Orange customers using the new service provided by Bango can use online services such as account top-ups or the purchasing of accessories in games. Once they have confirmed the purchase, they will receive a text message from Orange to notify them of their Facebook purchase.

“I am proud of this partnership with Facebook, which once again demonstrates the attractiveness of operator billing solutions. It is a great success for Orange which is dedicated to providing users with the best online purchasing experience, irrespective of the handset used,” said Hélène ViotPoirier, Head of Portals at Orange.

Ray Anderson, CEO OF Bango said: “The enhanced user experience for smartphones and other connected mobile devices means that Facebook users who connect either through the Orange network or through WiFi can consistently pay on their Orange France phone bill.”
