Irish mobile payment start-up boxPAY has opened on office in San Francisco, California and is now offering mobile carrier billing in the US and Canada.
boxPAY provides Premium-SMS and direct carrier billing solutions, enabling e-businesses to charge their customers for digital content through a mobile phone instead of a credit card. The company offers in-app, one-touch billing on the Android platform, as well as subscription billing in more than 40 countries.
“The move to North America was crucial to boxPAY’s global expansion because of the significant amount of cellular subscribers in Canada and the US. We needed to offer our merchants from all over the globe access to these 350 million+ customers, especially because of the fact that mobile users here are comfortable with mobile payments,” commented boxPAY’s Co-Founder Gavin McConnon.
