Mobile payment is booming on the internet
DIMOCO has positioned itself as a mobile transaction provider in the CEE region
Brunn am Gebirge (Austria), 28. February 2011. DIMOCO – a mobile payment solution provider for content providers – has recently re-positioned itself to focus on providing and running a mobile payment and messaging transaction hub for its customers.
With this realignment, the target customer group has also expanded to include mobile payment solution providers. These so-called Payment Intermediaries operate their own business hubs for commercial customers. DIMOCO runs all the technical connections in the background for these new customers, acting as the commercial and contractual interface to the mobile operators and offering access to the mobile infrastructure in the CEE countries. DIMOCO’s expertise and experience with the legal and regulatory provisions in these markets has proved a winner. The reason for this repositioning is the rapid growth of the mobile industry, the development of new market segments in the Internet and the mobile web, where mobile payment is the preferred payment method. An additional consideration was DIMOCO’s decision to concentrate fully on its core competencies.
“Today we expect a rapid growth in mobile payment sector of about 400 percent in the next 4 to 5 years. The main part of this growth will take place on the Internet, where more and more users handle their purchases of digital and virtual goods via their mobile phone bill. Our new positioning is a logical consequence of that”, explains Gerald Tauchner, DIMOCO Chief Executive Officer, adding: “The difference is, from now on we will be supporting existing mobile payment providers – while they concentrate on the payment solutions they offer, we work in the background, providing access, business development, and advice on the country-specific regulations and opportunities”.
Virtual and digital goods are billed via mobile phones
Numerous studies have shown that mobile payment is the fastest developing area in the mobile segment. Virtual and digital goods, above all, are the driving force behind mobile payment: For example, mobile payment is essential for browser games. Small sums and ease of use favor payment via the cell phone.
DIMOCO is focusing on the trend and has positioned itself as the Mobile Payment and Messaging Transaction Partner
