Another step ahead for Facebook’s strategy to make more money out of its mobile business: the company is accepting mobile payments for its mobile web service via carrier billing in the U.S., UK and Germany and it has now been confirmed that it is Bango powering the service. The option of letting users bill services like virtual gifts and game credits to their mobile phone operators was first announced in February 2012, and means that users do not need to use premium SMS or credit cards in order to buy these: it’s a one-click system. Bango also provides similar services for BlackBerry’s App World, Opera’s Mobile Store and Google Play. It is also working with Amazon on a similar service. Bango says it will be rolling Facebook carrier billing out to further countries later in the year.Facebook Mobile Payments Via Carrier Now Live in U.S., U.K. and Germany [techcrunch.com]
