Bigpoint.com Partners with PlaySpan

bigpoint_payment_3Since many people don’t own a credit card (particularly the teenage demographic), it can be difficult to monetize a large portion of potential customers through traditional payment methods. To help remedy this problem, Bigpoint.com, one of the world’s largest portal sites for web games, has partnered with PlaySpan, a monetization solutions company.

PlaySpan offers a variety of payment solutions, including its Ultimate Game Card from the company’s PayByCash subsidiary. The game card, which is sold in stores, is part of the ever-growing currency card business.

With more than 63 million global users — and around 200,000 new ones daily — Bigpoint.com is one of the largest online game portals. The site wants to expand its paying audience by using the PayByCash UGC.

“Implementing PlaySpan’s solution to our offerings gives our customers greater access to a premium selection of browser-based games and the most flexible means of purchasing them online,” says Bigpoint’s chief financial officer, Michael Gutsmann.

Currently, 14 games will be covered via the partnership, including Managergames Hockey, DarkOrbit, and K.O. Champs.
