CellPoint Digital partners with MTC Game to enable more payment options for gamers
By Edlyn Cardoza
CellPoint Digital, a leading global provider of digital commerce and payment solutions, recently announced a partnership with a global e-commerce platform for video gamers, MTC Game. An international retailer, MTC Game provides an online platform for digital codes and services to gamers.
The company will take advantage of CellPoint Digital’s payment orchestration platform. This will enable video gamers, initially in Africa but with plans to expand further, to experience a frictionless checkout, allowing customers to pay via the popular payment methods on the continent, including Bank Transfer and Mobile Money options.
By orchestrating payments across Africa, CellPoint Digital allows MTC Game to adopt a multi-acquirer payments model that will ultimately open new growth opportunities. As a result, CellPoint Digital will help increase MTC Game’s top-line revenue by utilising intelligent routing, increasing authorisations, providing system uptime transparency, and reducing the operational cost of accepting cross-border payments.
Sinan BAĞ, Business Development Manager at MTC Game, commented: “The video game industry is one of the largest media sectors in the world, with gamers in every market. We are excited to expand our payment offering for customers in Africa as we know it will give players in the region more seamless access to the games they want to enjoy.
“CellPoint Digital has been hugely supportive in making this happen. Their close consultative approach on which cross-border payment partners we need to approach, and how to best utilise their platform to meet our market goals, has been indispensable. We look forward to adding more payment methods to our platform and taking on new territories together with the CellPoint Team.”
Kristian Gjerding, CEO of CellPoint Digital, added: “In regions like Africa, where video game consoles from all three major markets can be found, it is pivotal for sellers to let their consumers pay with currencies and methods beyond their local options. By partnering with MTC Game, we are helping our new partner with its expansion plans. The video game sector has always felt like a natural extension of our success in the gambling and retail industries, and we are excited to disrupt payments in this dynamic vertical.”
Currently, Africa is MTC Game’s initial market utilising CellPoint Digital’s payment orchestration platform. However, as the partnership continues, this change’s potential benefits will help them expand into other regions.
