Global provider of mobile payment services mopay and Viettel Telecom, a mobile network operator in Vietnam, have signed a strategic direct carrier billing partnership.

The agreement is set to enable mopay’s international merchant portfolio to allow Viettel’s 58 million user base to transact with mopay. Thus, purchases of digital goods that are billed through the Viettel phone bill can now be processed.

The mopay payment process that Vietnamese users are set to experience, works as follows: when purchasing a digital or virtual item online, consumers choose mopay as their payment method. mopay then needs a verified mobile phone number to bill the requested amount. No registration or further information is needed. All user interfaces, such as PC screens, tablets and mobile phones, are supported in order to make the payment method adapt to different usage scenarios. Users can pay for music, games, virtual items or even tickets.
