Boku – Pay For Digital Goods By Mobile Phone

BOKU is a web site that tends to provide mobile users with a industry standard for mobile payments. BOKU is creating the standard for online payments using your mobile phone, making it easy to pay for digital goods and social experiences across the web. With a strong focus on reliability and security, BOKU’s goal is to bring bank-grade payments technology and mobile users together on the web, creating a trusted, viable and accessible market for consumers, publishers and carriers alike.

Based in San Francisco with offices in Europe, Asia and Latin America, BOKU reaches over 1.6 billion consumers worldwide, and is funded by leading Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.

Actually, BOKU is an online payments service that makes it easy and safe to pay for virtual and digital goods with your mobile phone. Purchases on many of your favorite gaming, entertainment and social sites can be charged to your wireless phone bill using BOKU. No credit card or bank account is required.

You don’t need a bank account or a credit card. You just need an active mobile phone with text messaging. Even no registration or passwords are required. Through dozens of carrier relationships, BOKU reaches over 1.6 billion customers in 50+ countries worldwide. And they are continually launching new carriers and countries.

Also it is safer than credit card. BOKU is safer because in order to complete a transaction they require a text message confirmation for each transaction. This means someone could not complete a transaction using your telephone number only; they would need to have access to your phone.

A credit card, on the other hand, is directly connected to your credit, financial and personal ID files, and if someone has your credit card numbers they don’t need to have the card on hand to make the transaction. BOKU has dozens of years of experience in payments and fraud prevention, so they have added additional safety precautions to every transaction.

If you want to use BOKU, look for the Pay By Mobile button in hundreds of games and applications across the web. If you are a publisher and want to integrate BOKU, just fill out their Publisher signup form and they will get back to you with more information in a few days.
