Opera Mobile App Store signs billing deal with Bango
It hosts over a million free app downloads daily, while the Opera Mini and Opera mobile browsers run on more than 100 million devices worldwide; and support over 3,000 handsets.
Way to pay
Taking the business to the next step, Opera has signed a deal with mobile billing outfit Bango to bring payments including operator billing and credit card payment to the store.
The service is expected to go live during the autumn.
"Bango is delighted to now provide carrier billing for the Opera Mobile App Store; our second major app store," said CEO Ray Anderson.
"Bango is continuing to develop a number of other significant app store opportunities and our progress gives us confidence that we are well placed to accelerate growth in future periods."
