Bango Billing Live on the Opera Mobile Store

Mobile payments and analytics firm Bango has launched its mobile payments system for the Opera Mobile Store. We first revealed details of the agreement a couple of months ago.

The agreement means that Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browser users can uy apps and pay for content within apps, placing the charges on their carrier bill, or through a credit card, using Bango’s browser-based payments system, direct from the mobile handset.

The Opera Mobile Store can be accessed via a single click from the Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers, making it immediately accessible to more than 100m customers. The store is also accessible through any other mobile browser at: mobilestore.opera.com. Every user will discover apps and content targeting their specific mobile device, local market and currency. The store is one of the top 10 app store services for mobile phone users available worldwide today.  

The Opera deal is Bango’s second big app store contract. The company is also running the mobile billing system for the BlackBerry App World app store.
