Smart TV is starting to get more attention these days. But the industry has a long way to go before providing great experience like the smartphones do now. For instance, Smart TV apps are not as frequently downloaded as smartphone apps; people do not bother much because of the online registration and the pains of entering credit card number using the remote control.
Now, Boxpay is expecting to change all that. Boxpay’s new software development kit allows consumers to pay for TV apps through their Android phones, billing all purchases through their mobile carrier. This means you can forget about the hassles of entering credit card numbers using your TV’s remote control.
With Boxpay, Smart TV manufacturers and Smart TV or Android app developers can offer an in-app mobile payment option to promote instant buying. Boxpay’s comprehensive SDK and technical support make implementation fast and easy.
Boxpay customers can make a mobile payment using carrier billing since Boxpay has relationships with 280 carriers in 65 countries.
Founders of Boxpay say they feel this is the start of something big. We agree, it’s a big step.
