Huawei is co-operating with fintech company, TPAY MOBILE to make it easier and more convenient for developers in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region to monetise their apps on Huawei Mobile Services (HMS).
The first phase of the agreement will offer direct carrier billing (DCB) services in 10 countries across MEA region, including all mobile subscribers.
Huawei and TPAY MOBILE have been working closely as part of their on-going commitment to support developers in the MEA region.
The partnership according to the two companies will allow local and global developers to monetise their apps and services through HMS’ in-app-purchases (IAP) kit across the region.
TPAY MOBILE’s DCB service offers all Huawei’s HMS customers in the MEA region the ability to pay for their apps and services through their mobile phone number. This will make it more accessible for Huawei and Honour device users to pay for online services and apps on HMS.
As a result, developers will get 100% DCB coverage in the MEA region including Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman.
Sahar Salama, Founder and CEO, TPAY MOBILE, said: “We are very excited to launch this strategic partnership with Huawei which will equip local and global developers with the tools they need to better monetise their services through in-app-purchases capabilities. This agreement further extends the value of TPAY MOBILE for top global merchants who are aspiring to scale their businesses across our region. Developers and online merchants have now an unparalleled access and local know-how, coupled with a trusted, agile, resilient and scalable payments platform that they can use to scale up their businesses. During the first phase, we aspire to roll out payments in around 10 countries.”
Adam Xiao, Managing Director, HMS and Consumer Cloud Service, Huawei Consumer Business Group MEA, said: “We welcome the opportunity to partner with TPAY MOBILE and as a result provide our users with more payment options. By working with TPAY MOBILE we have been able to make it easier for local and global developers to monetise their apps and services to millions more people in the MEA region.”
TPAY MOBILE is the top alternative payments enabler in the MEA region and brings a wide range of capabilities to Huawei’s HMS platform.Click below to share this article
