Opera Partners with Neomobile for New Payment Platform

The announcement came today from Opera that they would be pairing up with mobile payments specialist Neomobile in bringing a new system to Opera; the Opera Payment Exchange Service (OPX), a one-click operator-billing platform. 

This new payment freedom will be available to users of Neomobile services, and the Opera Mini mobile browser.

Opera Mini is the mobile version of the Opera software Web-browsing platform, with over 200 million users worldwide.

The goal of OPX is the deliverance of a secure space for consumers as well as an easygoing experience for consumers to make mobile payments when purchasing music, video, games and other digital goods and service in eleven different countries.

The next step in this new partnership between both companies is the integration of Onebip, which is Neomobile’s payment service. This service will spread to the 70 countries in which it has exact connections with mobile operators, according to CEO of Neomobile, Gianluca D’Agostino. 

The CEO also stated, “This will let merchants and other media companies make the most of all the ways to monetize their services through the Opera Mini browser.”

Opera Commerce CEO Sameer Merchant said, "Opera strives to work with partners like Neomobile to strengthen the mobile payment ecosystem for Opera Mini users through OPX. One by one, we want to partner with premium mobile payment service providers like Neomobile to give the convenience of mobile payments to our Opera Mini users."

Neomobile was founded in 2007 and has headquarters in Rome, with other offices spread all over the world, in places such as San Francisco, Madrid, Paris, Istanbul, and Mumbai. 

Highly visible in Europe, Latin America and India, Neomobile is the global leader in mobile technology.

Opera Software ASA was founded in 1994 on the belief that World Wide Web should be universal.  Now in the 21st Century, over 275 million people are using Opera Web browsers for mobile phones, computers, televisions, and all other connected devices.
