Alibagames partners with SafeCharge to deliver advanced global payments technology to game studios

For gamers, the platform enables an optimised payment experience, with all preferred local payment methods and currencies, including a new payment method designed for North Africa, a very dynamic market for gaming.

SafeCharge (LON: SCH), the leading payments technology company, today announced its partnership with the newly-launched all-in-one video game portal Alibagames. The portal is a marketplace where game developers and studios can place their games and gamers enjoy a room full of tools where they can purchase games and enjoy a massive community.

Alibagames provides a complete solution for studios to publish their games and to answer all the needs of a player. It will manage all aspects of game publishing including servers for download and multiplayer, translation into fifteen languages by native team with gaming expertise, community management events and full technical support.

Thanks to SafeCharge’s advanced payment technology, Alibagames will ensure the smoothest payment experience for gamers on the platform, including for microtransaction payments. SafeCharge checkout pages dynamically present each player all the most popular local methods, in local currency with instructions in local languages.

Adapting to local payment culture is crucial to ensure the highest conversion rates, which is why Alibagames portal will introduce Gamecard, a new payment system specially designed for gamers in North Africa to enable studios to enter and monetise this increasingly dynamic market.

In addition, SafeCharge Payments Engine features a range of smart logic functions such as presenting an alternative payment method when a payment with a first method is unsuccessful. It also enables conversion analysis of the payment funnel so conversion can continuously be improved through A/B testing.

SafeCharge also provides a robust fraud prevention technology specifically designed for gaming embedded into its Payment Engine. All suspect transactions are identified in real time and handled accordingly in an automated way.  Working with SafeCharge enabled Alibagames in its beta period to reduce fraud and chargebacks to some of the lowest levels in the industry.

“SafeCharge is delighted to be working with Alibagames, a leading innovative marketplace for online video games,” stated Yuval Ziv, COO, SafeCharge. “Its focus on underserved markets and bringing the work of a new generation of studios to a wider market has an exciting future.”

“Working with SafeCharge means the best gamers payment experience and the best payment service for game studios,” says Leopold Maurel VP Business and Development, Alibagames. “This is vital for studios to rely on smart and cost effective payment technology to thrive. After a successful beta period, we know that working with SafeCharge will drive successful business for studios looking to reach new markets and a wider audience.”
