DOCOMO Digital, a global leader in direct carrier billing and alternative payments, and Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, have announced a strategic payments partnership today.
DOCOMO Digital will catalyse further growth for Razer by integrating alternative payment methods such as carrier billing and e-wallets. Razer Gold customers will be able to make in-game purchases with their preferred payment methods. Razer will be able to leverage DOCOMO Digital’s global coverage while DOCOMO Digital’s carrier partners will be able to offer Razer’s leading-edge repertoire of hundreds of game titles and as many publishers.
“The global ‘stay-at-home’ situation has boosted user engagement with gaming and esports to record levels,” Razer Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Min-Liang Tan had said in the earnings release in August.
“Razer is one of the most sought after brands in the world of gaming, and we are very pleased to have Razer on board as one of our global partners, in line with our vision to bring the most compelling digital services to our carrier and payment partners, especially in exciting spaces like gaming,” said Jonathan Kriegel, CEO at DOCOMO Digital.
The partnership will kick-off with carrier billing integrations in Turkey, with multiple rollouts planned in the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Latin America regions over the next few months.
