Direct Carrier Billing Solution
Text2Pay is a New York City-based provider of online and mobile payments. Its Tap2Pay solution, which enables consumers to make single-click payments on mobile Websites and within mobile apps on a smartphone, has been chosen by our panel of judges as the winner in the Best Direct Carrier Billing Solution category.
“The team at Text2Pay has recognized the need for Android mobile application developers to easily and seamlessly integrate a payment solution into their application,” the company says. “Before now, collecting payments was problematic for developers. Fortunately, the Tap2Pay platform can operate in the Android space.”
Launched in 2012, Tap2Pay can be white-labeled and the company has agreements with carriers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States and nearly 60 others. Merchants can integrate the service into their offerings in two ways: the Tap2Pay HTML5 Web Mobile Payment Flow and the Tap2Pay In-App Payment solution for Android devices. Text2Pay says it enables developers to integrate the Tap2Pay payment widget into their mobile Website or application with a simple API and Java library.
“Tap2Pay does not require credit-card details, user login or third-party registration,” the company notes. “It is as simple as accepting the payment and having the purchase added to the user’s phone bill. Our software uses an identification process to recognize the user's phone number, so the user will not have to input any information such as a password or PIN authentication.”
For consumers, Text2Pay says the process is simple. The developer makes one call to start the transaction and the user confirms this with a single tap on their mobile phone.
Conversion has always been a strength for direct-carrier billing solution providers and Tap2Pay is no different. And, increased conversion leads to increased revenue. The company firmly believes that having a quick and secure payment method for customers will provide any online business with a seamless payment tool that will push their brand to the next level.
At the moment, direct-carrier billing is popular with online and mobile gaming providers and one of Text2Pay’s clients successfully using the service is Mobile Media Group.
“Text2Pay have really pushed the boundaries in the mobile payments space by developing Tap2Pay,” the online gaming company says. “By allowing users to ‘tap’ for their in-app purchase, it makes the payment process seamless and enjoyable to end users. The white label option is fantastic. When we wanted to customize our payment model, Text2Pay adapted to our requirements no questions asked.”
