Bango Plc (AIM: BGO) allows smartphone and tablet users to pay for apps, games, music and video via one click, which adds the payment to their phone bill. This is known as Direct Carrier Billing (DCB), and Bango take a fee from each transaction going through their system.
Bango’s technology sits on both the app stores and mobile operators servers – acting as an interface between mobile users, the app stores and network operators. And because they are gathering and analysing data from all these parties, they are able to advise partners of potential optimisations – recommendations which help increase end user spend and conversion rates.
Global leaders plugging into Bango include Amazon, Google, Samsung, and Microsoft, and the company have over 140 payment routes activated, with a 40% share of the direct carrier billing market (Progressive Equity Research, March 2016).
