Mobile payments firm Bango partners with Netflix


Cambridge-headquartered mobile payments firm Bango announced a partnership with streaming giant Netflix in Mexico.

Customers who sign up to Netflix can now charge the monthly subscription cost to their pre- or post-paid mobile phone bill.

Enabled by Bango, carrier billed payment is initially available to over 12 million subscribers in Mexico on any platform, including Android, Apple and Microsoft devices.

“Carrier billing adds many new customers to merchant services. We are pleased to provide a fast, safe, easy to use alternative payment method for Netflix customers in Mexico,” said Bango chief executive Ray Anderson.

“Netflix is a hugely popular entertainment service and Bango is delighted that the world’s major merchants are choosing to plug into the Bango platform.”

Bango, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange, allows customers to buy apps or in-app content by placing the charge directly onto their mobile phone bill.
