Onebip to exhibit at Gamescom 2014 in August

 

The Onebip team will have a dedicated booth at this year’s Gamescom event in Cologne from 13 – 15 August to meet and catch up with existing and new partners in the fast growing gaming sector.

GamesCom, Europe’s epicentre for games and gamers, is a very important event for us because it gives the team a chance to catch up with our existing contacts and meet new partners from all over the world face to face.  We’ll be organising meetings during the three trade visitor days to keep you up-to-date with developments of our partnership and also to introduce Onebip to new partners and how we can help businesses monetize effectively with mobile payments.

The most popular billing payment flows explained

 

Editor’s note: This is part of a monthly blog series by Gokmen Atak, Onebip’s Product Offer & Quality Specialist.  Gokmen aims to share his “Tips of the month” which includes product features and updates that Onebip partners can take advantage of to improve their mobile payment offering.  Please feel free to add your comments at the end of the post.

 

Consumers love to use carrier billing to purchase digital goods not only because it’s a simple and seamless purchase experience but because they don’t have to deal with the complex authorization steps that they may have to using other payment methods online.

 

With carrier billing, consumers don’t need to enter their account details, billing address, credit card data and they don’t need to register or create a new account when they want to pay because carriers already have their payment data and personal information in order to bill them – their mobile phone accounts! It’s as simple as click to buy.

 

However carrier billing involves complex relationships between carriers, merchants and billing platforms which largely changes country by country. We’ve seen different types of purchase experiences evolve in this ecosystem, starting with the early beginnings of carrier billing in 2000s with PSMS billing systems which involved simply texting a certain keyword to a number, and expanding to today’s Direct Carrier Billing systems which is widely accepted by merchants and app developers, leveraged by seamless one-click payments.

We’ve often found that merchants like to understand in detail the carrier billing payment flow and consumer experience to be able to compare it with other alternative payment methods.  Merchants also want to choose the right billing platform with the best streamlined experience for their customers.

In light of this, I’d like to list and explain the different payment flows Onebip has adapted globally in this Tip of the Month. Read more

A Onebip technician’s view of PHP DAY 2013 Italy

PHP Day image1

On the 18th and19th of May I had the privilege to participate at the Italian PHP day in Verona with my workmates for the 2nd time.

 

Why @PHP day?

As a software engineer programming in PHP, it’s really important to follow the active international community. PHP day’s conferences offer the possibility to learn really interesting things from the international PHP gurus that are dedicated exclusively to PHP development and its related technologies.

Here is my experience of the two days I spent in Verona: Read more

Using Builder Pattern Implementation to generate value objects

Yesterday while working on a task about the Onebip Core I found a domain concept which was not represented by any object, so I decided to create a new class definition to encapsulate this concept with its own responsibility.

While developing the class I saw that it was not able to know all its attributes without relying on an external source of knowledge. At this early stage of the developing process I decided to pass this external source in the constructor and finish to write my class.
