Clients are increasingly asking us about alternative methods of mobile payments to the well established ‘Premium SMS’, where a charge is settled via their monthly phone bill or pre-paid credit by sending or receiving an SMS message.
We’re delighted to announce that we won the ‘Best Billing Provider’ category at the Mobile Advertising and Marketing Awards 2009! The prestigious ceremony took place in London on Thursday, attended by the great and the good of the mobile world.
Our founding directors were in attendance that night and relayed the news to the team at txtNation HQ. We couldn’t be happier that all the hard work with our billing platform has gained this recognition.
The award particularly recognises our work on the recently-launched mENABLE Widget, a streamlined billing product that includes SMS, credit card and phone billing in one neat interface.
The award is validation that the newest product to our platform is on course to be a real winner for our clients’ sites. The hard work isn’t over though: we’ve still got lots of plans for improving the Widget and related products such as the main mENABLE, as well as our mBILL billing and messaging API.
We learned today that we’ve been nominated in the ‘Best Billing Provider’ category at the prestigious Mobile Advertising and Marketing Awards, to be held in London on May 7th 2009. The nomination is principally for the work we’ve done on the Widget, which consolidates our experience of mobile and online billing over the years. We’re honoured that even at this early stage in the life of the Widget, we’ve received such an exciting nomination.
Behind-the-scenes we’re putting the final touches to the massive effort to translate the Widget. We’ll soon support many major languages in addition to English. The ability to localise your billing platform for international markets is really important.
It builds trust with your members or consumers and improves usability. In countries where English is hardly spoken at all, the whole country is opened up.
We’re adding language support for tongues as various as Albanian, Bulgarian, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Finnish, and Russian, opening the billing tool up to millions more customers.
We’ll release a full list of support languages once the translation phase has been completed.
The Widget, our streamlined billing platform, is now available. You can find information on our dedicated product site. Combining SMS (now available), IVR and credit card payment options, the discrete application can be embedded easily in all types of sites.
IVR and credit card are in development and will be released shortly. We’re taking the view that this is a platform that we’re going to use as a foundation for great things in online and mobile billing. In the coming months, the Widget will maintain its ease-of-use but will attract a range of new options so you can gear it just for your brand.
We’ve always been keen to hear your feedback on our products, but with the Widget, feedback is at the heart of our development process. There’s a section on the new product site just to collect your ideas and opinions on the Widget.
This is the start of a new world of billing simplicity.
