Mobile Billing for Gambling Operators - Common FAQ's


What countries do you cover? and what are the commercials?




What flows do you provide? Any Examples?



and for more background:



We are interested in getting an aggregation Merchant ID that would allow us to process transactions for our merchants through it, would you be willing to offer this option for us?

We can discuss an Operator reference included in the billing URL.

Merchant IDs normally include the specific merchant/casino bill statement tag so customers can easily identify mobile charges.

Casino merchant transactions could be aggregated during the txtNation billing cycle.

‘On board merchants’? If question coming through the Operator and Operator wants to deliver pay by mobile to individual merchant operators then the answer would be the ‘remote gambling’ prior permission. Assuming Operator is going to refer them to us as billing partner to manage that with each of them.

This answer also depends on whether Operator is taking commission from transaction or working on a different model.



What would the KYC procedures required to on board merchants?

The KYC procedures are the full responsibility of the casino and required when Player withdraws money.
So we can integrate technical solution and assess merchant complies with KYC polices/processes. Some poker rooms execute KYC during play to identify key location/tax information. For general betting/casino full KYC happens on withdrawal.
Age verification procedures are required up front or at least very shortly after registration / 1st Deposit & Play. When mobile deposits are used as 1st Deposit then casino required to execute age verification process.
Regulators require us to execute some level of checks / audit where we integrate mobile billing. e.g. getting signed statements from casino about their policies/procedures (which is part of the prior permission certification process).
Mobile Operator Billing allows users to quickly make a deposit and redeem special offer value. Where user has to fill out awkward / lengthy fields we can assist with age verification and ID flows; while ‘registered / non active' players can redeem special offers immediately using mobile billing.
