Rangers FC Development Fund has selected paythru as its mobile payments supplier for three Rangers fundraising activities: Lotto, Rising Stars, and Buy a Brick.
The highly successful Rangers Lotto has been running since 1994. Using the paythru mobile payments platform, supporters will now be able to buy a ticket on their mobile phone, with their debit or credit card, whether they are at the ground or not. No pre-registration is required.
Tickets for the Rising Stars draw, which helps fund Rangers youth squad, can now be bought via supporters mobile phones enabling fans to get to their seats quickly without having to stop and buy a ticket from one of the stadium vendors. The paythru payment system will also allow passionate supporters to buy one of 120,000 bricks in a walkway round Ibrox via their mobile phone.
Weve got more than 650,000 supporters on our database and already offer online and phone payment facilities, but the introduction of a mobile payment channel will allow us to reach our younger supporters and make it easier for those supporters that want to join in the fun during or after the match, says Rangers Development Fund Director of Operations, Colin Stewart. paythru has been an excellent choice as our mobile payment provider as the integration has been straightforward and the supporters interface is simple and easy to use. One of the strongest reasons for us selecting them was that the system works across all credit and debit cards.
