UK – Skrill 1-Tap introduces instant payment for SBOBETBy Phil - 12 December 2014
Online gaming brand SBOBET has added digital payments company Skrill 1-Tap to its mobile and desktop offerings.
Skrill 1-Tap connects with Skrill’s Digital Wallet to offer quick and easy mobile payments to merchants and customers. By using Skrill 1-Tap, SBOBET customers can make payments in ‘one tap’ on any device, rather than having to repeatedly enter their login details or sensitive credit card information. Customers’ card details are securely saved after the initial payment made via Skrill, so the one tap functionality is enabled next time they log on to SBOBET.
Paul Barclay, VP of Gambling and FX, Skrill commented: “We developed Skrill 1-Tap following in-depth consumer research, so we are delighted to see this innovative solution quickly becoming the preferred option for mobile and desktop payments in the gaming sector. SBOBET customers can now make seamless payments in a secure way wherever and whenever they wish.The future is mobile and Skrill’s focus on innovation means we are able to meet customer’s changing needs, delivering an enhanced, more convenient experience and a product that suits them.”
Bill Mummery, Executive Director, SBOBET added: “Adoption of Skrill 1-Tap means a significant reduction of ‘friction’ for our customers when placing their bets. This is particularly important for in-play betting, which now forms a major part of our gaming activity. We have been particularly impressed by Skrill’s innovative technology-led approach to digital payments.”
