Ankama, a renowned publisher of online video games, now has more than 2.5 million active players over more than 150 countries. Implementing a payment solution in virtual goods shops is a complex issue, and up to now, the company had been using several partnerships in order to offer its players payment solutions adapted to each different market. As along-term customer of HiPay Mobile (a European micro-payments leader), Ankama chose to centralise payment processing with a single partner by integrating HiPay Fullservice. This platform allows the company to accept bank payments in various countries using a simple transaction management process.
“Besides the simplification of the processing of financial flows from over 150 countries, HiPay Fullservice solution convinced us with its anti-fraud system. Online fraud practice is increasing, this payment platform is able to offer us a module with innovative features. We have set up this tool with HiPay’s anti-fraud experts team in order to ensure a personalized protection against fraud”, said Julien Lajeunesse, Payment Director at Ankama.
Ankama’s business is rapidly expanding on an international level. This unique partnership with HiPay demonstrates our ability to answer global payment topics (whether mobile or bank-based and regardless of the country) of digital content publishers as well as e-tailers.
