Boku’s Fortumo launches carrier billing payments with EasyPark

Boku Inc (LON:BOKU), a leading global provider of mobile payment and identity solutions, has announced that its subsidiary Fortumo is today launching carrier billing payments with EasyPark, the parking technology company, for parking in Switzerland.

Over 8 million people can now easily pay for their parking via the EasyPark parking-app, all over Switzerland, by charging the fee to their phone bill. The payment method is supported for all subscribers of local mobile operators Swisscom, Sunrise and Salt.

To pay with carrier billing, drivers can easily send a text message that includes the parking area code when they have parked their car. This starts the parking while the reply message includes a deeplink to the EasyPark app where users will be able to see their parking status and extend or stop their parking.

Normally, integrating carrier billing is a complex process for merchants, every mobile operator requires a separate contract and technical integration to provide payments to its subscribers. By partnering with Fortumo, EasyPark can roll out carrier billing payments across several markets through a single contract and integration with Fortumo. EasyPark and Fortumo have been working together on providing drivers convenient payments for parking fees since 2018 in Finland, Norway, Sweden and since 2019 in Slovenia.

Ludvig Ellius, Chief Payment Officer of EasyPark Group commented, “EasyPark helps millions of drivers around the world to save time and money by making parking management easier. Carrier billing supports this by giving our customers a simple way to make payments. We are happy to share the news that we now also offer Fortumo’s platform as a payment method in Switzerland, when paying for your parking with the EasyPark app.”

Martin Lips, Vice President of Business Development at Fortumo, commented, “Carrier billing provides users with the most convenient user experience for digital payments. When standing in a parking lot and being in a rush, people just want to pay quickly for their parking and move on. They don’t have time to stand in a line for the parking machine or find coins. Therefore, we are super excited for the launch of parking payments with EasyPark parking app in Switzerland, so we can help people to make their parking easier and more convenient.”
