Mobile payments company Bango has signed a global agreement with Samsung to bring one-click payments to the Galaxy Apps store.
The deal will give owners of Samsung devices the ability to pay for digital purchases - digital goods – apps, music, games etc - using frictionless payment, which charges the cost to their phone bill in one click.
Really flexible friend
Bango handles the carrier billing, as well as the collection and settlement of digital content purchased through the app store.
Carrier billing is emerging as a vital enabler of mobile commerce, making it easier than ever to purchase digital goods on the go without needing to access credit or debit card information.
The deal means Samsung has joined the likes of Amazon, BlackBerry World, Windows Phone Store, Facebook, Firefox Marketplace and Google Play in partnering with Bango to gain access to its carrier billing capability.
