Onebip Partners with SLA Digital for  Direct Operator Billing in the Middle East


Onebip has partnered with SLA Digital to extend their Direct Operator Billing coverage in the Middle East for their portfolio of content partners.

The Direct Operator Billing partnership is now live in the UAE, with plans to further leverage SLA’s mobile operator connectivity across the region.

Ashley O’Kane, Head of Marketing at SLA Digital commented, “We are pleased to have partnered with Onebip to give them access to more customers via Direct Operator Billing in the MENA region. Our capability to connect content partners via one integration into multiple mobile operators across the world is key to entering new markets quickly.”


Direct Operator Billing is an alternative mobile payment option to credit and debit card and in markets like the UAE, where mobile penetration is extremely high, this solution is a game changer for content partners as it provides customers with a seamless and secure payment option.

In addition to Onebip, SLA Digital is the trusted Direct Operator Billing partner for an array of global app stores and content partners like Google and Microsoft.

eTX and Enarpee Services join forces to create a new regulatory services company, Monitoring and Compliance Partners Ltd (MCP) and launch three key market support services:

–          GoVerifyit (robust verification of consumer opt-in)

–          VeriAudits (automated testing & monitoring)

–          VeriScanner (affiliate tracking & recording)

eTX and Enarpee Services have joined forces to supply a full suite of regulatory services to, not only the Telecommunications Sector and PRS Industry, but also to other payment sectors. Commenting on their new entity ‘Monitoring and Compliance Partners’ (MCP), Declan Pettit, eTX Managing Director said: “Enarpee Services have years of experience in these markets and have built up not only a fine reputation, but also a network of International connections that we can tap into. Additionally, their collaborative approach to consultative services acts as a perfect complement to our technically focused solutions’. Neil Penny, MD of Enarpee Services added: “We have known eTX for years and are aware that they have a stable of well recognised, scalable applications to cater for the regulatory needs of the industry – used by European Regulators, Technical Aggregators and Marketing Companies. GoVerifyIt (their updated ‘bolt-on’ version where merchants are live in 24hrs) and their VeriAudits offer in particular, have a wide appeal and traction with the PRS market already.”

MCP has recently added a new product called VeriScanner, that scans sites leading to merchant sites and identifies changes to assess for regulatory compliance.

MCP’s first major contract was signed in July with First Data Corporation, a provider of electronic payment solutions and estimated to be one of the world’s largest organisations. MCP provides monitoring services of First Data’s new merchants.

MCP will be attending World Telemedia Marbella 15-17th October, so feel free to contact Neil Penny there for further information: 0771 434 5752/
