Fonix, the leading interactive service provider for mobile payment and messaging solutions has launched this month in Ireland.
Across Ireland, Fonix’s clients can now collect payments for in-app content, games, competitions and digital services from more than 5.1 million mobile subscribers by charging purchases to their postpaid phone bill or prepaid SIM card.
The expansion has started with Fonix managing the mobile interactivity for Bauer Ireland. Bauer Ireland is the country’s largest commercial radio group with five radio brands including the national stations Today FM and Newstalk, two SPIN youth stations and 98FM in Dublin.
Stephen George, Partnerships Director at Fonix comments:
“Heading into Ireland is another step to achieving our strategic growth plan. We are always looking for new ways to innovate; this is just the start to help us magnify our efforts and strengthen our vision.
“Fonix provides a secure, instant and frictionless experience for consumers while also ensuring first-class mobile payment technology, delivering efficiencies for brands.
“We look forward to driving growth across this market; our partnership with Bauer Ireland is a first-class example of our connectivity in Ireland being brought to life.”
