boxPAY Ltd is a new mobile technology firm created by Irish brothers Gavin and Iain McConnon. The company offers a SMS-based mobile payment platform for web merchants and game developers to charge their customers via a mobile carrier bill instead of by credit card, minimizing hassle for the end user. With the low resistance model, gamers can purchase in-game upgrades and currency in less than 10 seconds. A self-service, user-friendly web set-up option allows merchants to implement the platform on their website within minutes. The co-founders have over 10 years experience in mobile billing, and they created boxPAY in response to a need from online merchants who are losing potential sales over requirements for users to fill out lengthy credit card forms in order to make in-app or in-game purchases. Especially because of the boom in online gaming and application development, merchants are looking for additional ways to create revenue from their products, as well as monetize users in countries where credit cards are not widely used. boxPAY mobile billing is the perfect solution to meet these needs.
