Yverdon-les-Bains, Vaud, Switzerland, 2013/08/13 - Lotaris announced the conclusion of a strategic partnership with PayPal™, one of the largest online payment systems in the world, to expand the payment methods of its Lotaris® in-appCommerce product - PayPal.com / Lotaris.com.
Under the agreement, PayPal is the newest payment provider for the Lotaris in-appCommerce platform. This means that all developers using Lotaris in-appCommerce will now be able to offer their end-users the ability to make purchases using their PayPal account. This is in addition to the current payment methods that Lotaris in-appCommerce already supports, which includes credit cards and mobile operator billing in 80 countries.
Lotaris in-appCommerce, which handles the licensing and payments of digital goods and services within mobile apps, enables developers to distribute and monetize their apps across more platforms and devices with a single code base, saving both development time and effort. This leaves developers free to create more amazing apps and games. Today Windows developers worldwide are already using Lotaris in-appCommerce, and in September the solution will be expanded to include Android and shortly thereafter, HTML5 apps.
Lotaris Founder and CEO, Robert Tibbs, commented: “We are positioning Lotaris in-appCommerce to be the most comprehensive independent commerce and payment service for mobile and web developers. Hence we are extremely pleased that PayPal shares this vision. With this strategic partnership, developers on Lotaris in-appCommerce will have a broader range of options, yet take home a higher share of the revenue from their apps than the 70% they are typically used to on most app stores.”
Matthias Setzer, PayPal’s Senior Director Merchant Services and Innovation: “We share the vision of Lotaris and are pleased to engage in a strategic partnership with them. The services that Lotaris provides complements our payment solution very well and we look forward to embark on a long-term relationship with them for the Windows platform, Android, HTML 5 and other operating systems.”
