Earlier this year, we launched our Russian Mobile Operator Billing solution, enabling businesses to take advantage of our high payouts and easy integration. Now, we look at key information about the market and discuss reasons to operate there, through mobile.

The Market:
With the highest mobile penetration of all the BRIC countries, at 162.36%, and a population of over 143 million, Russia is a big market to enter. Having experienced a lot of growth in the usage of mobile internet in recent years, 31.4% of Russians accessed the web on their handsets last year, which is up on 21% in 2012 and 17% in 2011.

In Russia, the majority of mobile internet users are 18-24 year olds, followed closely by 25-34 year olds. This is a key demographic for mobile payments. Credit card payments can cause high drop-off rates, due to the long payment process on mobile, so our Mobile Operator Billing solution can solve this.

The Solution:
txtNation can offer mobile web optimised payments in Russia with a seamless payment process. We can offer a large tariff range from 1rub to 5000rub as well as full technical and compliance support and dedicated account management to ensure an easy setup process.

Our Mobile Operator Billing solution allows a user to simply enter their mobile number and be charged to their contract or pre-paid credit.

Single Click:
With MSISDN forwarding, we can offer single-click mobile payments. The user’s mobile number is detected, and they therefore cut out one step of the process. They can simply click a button to pay. This is only available through application on the MTS network.

Mobile Web Optimised Payments

Why Use Mobile Web Optimised Mobile Billing?

We recently announced that growing web trends have moved us towards ‘Single Click’ payments, for the optimum customer experience when used on mobile handsets. We have seen many businesses requiring better customer journeys on mobile, rather than optimising first for the traditional web.

As we are launching mobile web optimised payments across a number of countries this year, the infographic below explains the reasons why now is the right time for you to enable your customers to pay by mobile, with our optimum solutions.

Recent statistics show us that more and more people are accessing webpages through their mobile handsets. Mobile’s share of webpage views has gone from 4.5% in 2011 to 28.7% in 2014. It is likely that this trend continues for years to come. Almost 80% of internet users across the world use the mobile web. This means that many users are accessing the internet on their handsets as well as on their desktops. Both of these statistics show the growing need for a mobile optimised customer journey.

The growth in internet use on mobile handsets is largely due to the growth of smartphone penetration, with smartphone users worldwide totalling 1.75 billion this year.

When acquiring new customers via mobile, a smooth payment process can be the key difference between a sale and a drop-off. The mobile customer has the option to purchase on the go, meaning the more impulsive the payment process allows them to be, the better.

Using MSISDN forwarding, the user’s mobile number is detected, eliminating the need to enter any information. They simply press the button and pay, being charged to their contract or pre-paid credit.

We recently announced that growing trend in both customers and clients have moved us to focus on optimising our mobile billing solutions for use on the mobile web. Smartphone penetration rates have grown a lot in recent years, all over the world and businesses are finding that their customers are accessing their online services on their handsets a lot more than they used to.
