Opera Software and Neomobile will work together to bring mobile payment 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).
The firms said OPX’s goal is to make mobile payments a secure and easy experience for the more than 200 million Opera Mini users globally. Opera Mini users will also be able to buy digital goods and services easily and securely on their mobile devices through direct carrier billing in each country where Neomobile has its mobile entertainment services, the companies added.
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.
