net mobile AG integrates mobile payment solutions for NTT DOCOMO customers purchasing digital content via Sony's PlayStation®Store
Alongside Google Play, net mobile AG now facilitates mobile payments in Sony's PlayStation®Store for all of NTT DOCOMO's customers in Japan
Access to the payment service works via the Sony Entertainment portal or via the PlayStation®Store on PlayStation®3 (PS3™). Once there, users can select the payment option "mobile" and confirm their purchase with their NTT DOCOMO credentials.
In addition to NTT DOCOMO, many leading network operators worldwide already rely on net-m's flexible payment architecture for mobile payments in app stores like Google Play and Windows Phone Store. net-m runs the technical and operational interface between content providers and network operators in more than a dozen countries throughout Asia and Europe. With the help of net-m, over 100 million mobile phone customers (both prepaid and postpaid) can easily and securely pay for digital goods on Google Play, Windows Phone Store and, from now onwards, PlayStation®Store via their mobile phone bill.
"Our innovative Direct Carrier Billing solution has a cutting edge USP: it is quick to implement and can be individually tailored to each client's requirements. This flexibility makes us the preferred partner for many global service providers. The fact that the Japanese market leader NTT DOCOMO has again placed their trust in our solutions makes us very happy and reflects our technical capabilities, which we are extremely proud of", says Edgar Schnorpfeil, CEO of net mobile AG.
