Thursday 15 July 2010 11:55 CET | News

Payment services provider Smart2Pay has won a contract to supply its alternative payment methods to global online social network Friendster.

As a result of the agreement, Friendster users will gain access to more payment options while making purchases at the Friendster Gift Shop. They will also be able to load the recently launched Friendster Wallet.

Friendster has over 115 million registered users and over 61 million unique visitors a month globally. In December 2009, MOL Global, an affiliate of online payment solutions provider MOL AccessPortal Berhad (MOL), agreed to acquire 100 percent of Friendster, from a group of investors backed by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Benchmark Capital, DAG Ventures and IDG Ventures.

Smart2Pay is offering local payment services to international merchants since 2002, covering more than 60 countries globally.
