Boku Launches Direct Carrier Billing with Microsoft in South Korea & Saudi Arabia

LONDON, Feb. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boku Inc., (AIM: BOKU), the world's leading provider of mobile payment and identity solutions, has launched new mobile payment methods for Microsoft in both South Korea and Saudi Arabia.

Customers of South Korea’s SK Telecom (SKT) and Saudi Arabia’s Saudi Telecom (STC) can now make seamless & secure cardless payments in both Microsoft Xbox and Microsoft PC stores.

Microsoft gamers and PC users are now able to speed through checkout by using their phone number as their on-file payment method. To that end, Direct Carrier Billing will further accelerate the access and utilization of Microsoft products via digital payments for millions of SKT and STC subscribers.

Jon Prideaux, CEO Boku, commented, “We’re excited to further extend Microsoft’s mobile payments acceptance through our global carrier coverage that includes strategic partners like SKT and STC. Our collaboration with Microsoft isa promising achievement that will provide convenience and security to the millions of existing Microsoft platform users as well as attract new ones.”
