Over the years O8 have expanded their foot print across the globe with local offices in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Africa – to ensure that their carrier billing customers receive the service and account management they need to help business run smoothly.
So we asked Commercial Product Manager, Helena Karlsson what’s new for Oxygen 8 this year.
“Whilst Oxygen8 remain a leading mobile payments provider globally and we are increasing our connections in South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Mozambique and Kenya during 2016 & 2017”.
She goes on to say: “In Africa Oxygen8 can now offer the purchase of physical goods via carrier billing in Africa with up to 97% payouts using Mobile Money Africa (similar to Safaricom’s MPESA solution)” . Plus USSD in Africa – USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Services Data) which is an old technology (2 way conversation) which works really well in a region where so many people still have low level handsets”.
Of course O8 continue to lead the way in the UK with a suite of products including; Virtual Mobile Numbers (VMN), VMN voice & text, International voice and domestic PRS. Other Direct Carrier Billing opportunities include the launch of mobile billing for physical goods – which will be great for UK merchants using Oxygen8’s own e-money licence and platforms.
So if you’re planning to integrate mobile payments into your business –Oxygen 8 team will be out in force in Marbella. Their highly experienced team are ready to consult and offer free advice on how and why mobile is such a compelling proposition for merchants, VAS and content providers.
