Boku Launches Direct Carrier Billing with Microsoft and Vodafone in Three European Markets

Boku, a leading global mobile payment and mobile identity company, is pleased to announce the launch of direct carrier billing payment services to Microsoft platform users and Vodafone subscribers in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.

This partnership brings seamless and secure cardless payments to Vodafone subscribers in three countries in both Microsoft's Xbox and Windows stores.

Gamers and Windows users are now able to speed through checkout by using their phone number as their on-file payment method. To that end, direct carrier billing will further accelerate the access and utilisation of Microsoft products via digital payments for millions of Vodafone subscribers.

Jon Prideaux, CEO of Boku, commented, " This collaboration with Microsoft will provide convenience and security to the millions of existing Microsoft platform users, as well as attract new ones. It also further enhances the existing and extensive global carrier coverage Boku enables alongside strategic partners like Vodafone."
