Recently Opera Software and Neomobile entered into a strategic partnership to bring mobile payment freedom to users of Neomobile services and the Opera Mini mobile browser. As part of the agreement with Opera Commerce, a fully-owned subsidiary of Opera Software, the Neomobile mobile payment system will be integrated into the Opera Payment Exchange (OPX).
OPX aims to make mobile payments a secure and easy experience for the more than 200 million Opera Mini users globally. Opera Mini users will be able to purchase goods and services in the countries where Neomobile service is offered, with the same advantages of all other mobile browser users. With Neomobile, transactions will be seamlessly billed directly to the users’ mobile phone bill.
Commenting on this partnership, Sameer Merchant, CEO, Opera Commerce said,“Opera strives to work with partners like Neomobile to strengthen the mobile-payment ecosystem for Opera Mini users through OPX. One by one, we want to partner with premium mobile payment service providers like Neomobile to give the convenience of mobile payments to our Opera Mini users.”
Opera Mini is one of the world’s leading mobile browsers with users on all mobile platforms. Opera’s browsers are also available for computers, TVs and connected devices, including Opera Mobile, the browser for high-end mobile devices. Opera has more than 275 million users all over the world.
Neomobile is the global mobile commerce group at the center of the new mobile ecosystem. Established in February 2007, today Neomobile is a global leader in mobile entertainment in 11 markets, in Europe, Latin America and India.
