DIMOCO, Si.mobil Partner for Direct Carrier Payment

BUNN AM GEBIRGE, Austria — Mobile payment provider DIMOCO has announced a partnership with Slovenian network operator Si.mobil to launch a new direct carrier payment product.

The company said the new service allows companies to bill their digital content in a more flexible way and in a tariff range of up to 15 euros.

“As a European mobile operator payment partner we closely cooperate with mobile network operators. Thanks to our great partnership with Si.mobil we are now launching our new payment product to bring more flexibility to business customers who want to bill their digital content services via Si.mobil's networkm,” DIMOCO CEO Gerald Tauchner said.

Customers who decide to integrate DIMOCO mobile operator payment can profit from more flexibility, a better user experience, a higher tariff range (up to 15 Euros) and additional opt-in channels when it comes to billing Si.mobil customers, according to DIMOCO.

The new payment product can be used for digital content orders on the traditional and mobile web. The direct carrier-billing product allows companies to bill their digital content with more transparency and increased security standards.

“No MT (mobile terminated) messages are necessary in the mobile web opt-in process. The charging logic is hosted by the business customers and refunds can easily be managed via API,” Tauchner added.

According to a DIMOCO and Juniper Research white paper on the Slovenian mobile market, nearly 2.1 million people have cell phones, 27.6 percent have smartphones, and 72.4 percent use a mass-market handset. With a total penetration rate of more than 100 percent compared with a 38.6 percent credit card penetration, mobile operator payment is the payment method with the broadest potential reach in Slovenia.

DIMOCO noted that has contracts with all Slovenian mobile network operators, and since it was founded in 2000, it has been working constantly on intensifying its partnerships with the European mobile network operators, such as the cooperation with Si.mobil.
