Fortumo launches direct carrier billing with four Swedish operators

Thursday 16 August 2018 | 09:12 CET | News
Mobile technology company Fortumo launched direct carrier billing and SMS messaging with Swedish operators Telia, Tele2, Telenor and Tre. Subscribers can now make payments for digital content including app stores, streaming services and games by charging purchases to their mobile account. In the past, merchants had to use the local master aggregator WyWallet for carrier billing. Due to the closure of WyWallet in the end of May, Fortumo said it integrated and launched directly with the Swedish telcos in less than a month to avoid downtime for merchants.
