BillGO selects GlobalOnePay to manage in-app billing

PLANO, Texas, Dec. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GlobalOnePay, a leading provider of omni-channel payment processing technologies and merchant services announced today it has partnered with BillGO, an intelligent bill-pay app which lets customers pay and manage all their bills, including rent. Since launching nationally in late October, BillGO has seen a 65% jump in customers signing up to use the app. GlobalOnePay's advanced payment gateway will handle the automated subscription billing process, helping BillGO continue to grow its user base while reducing time and cost associated with managing accounts.

BillGO simplifies bill pay management, giving users control and visibility in one easy to use app. It proactively notifies users to upcoming bill payments, provides the ability to pay any bill with any payment method and offers users the option to split and pay bills with friends – a feature that banks and other bill pay providers don't offer. GlobalOnePay's in-app payment acceptance solution offers BillGO the ability to reach millions of new users and benefit from a scalable platform that delivers a host of value-added merchant services. GlobalOnePay provides transaction billing with both Apple PayTM and Android PayTM, resulting in a simpler, faster and more secure experience.

"We are excited to welcome GlobalOnePay as our official payment processor. Along with enhancing our payment capabilities, our development team found it extremely simple to integrate its feature-rich platform into our app," said Dan Holt, co-founder & CEO of BillGO. "With BillGO being a premier provider of bill payments and GlobalOnePay a leader in global payment processing, we see our partnership as an ideal fit of financial technologies that greatly benefits consumers everywhere."

GlobalOnePay's simple and secure method of authorizing credit card payments is set to deliver a frictionless consumer experience for BillGO users. Thanks to its auto account updater, a user needs to enter their billing information only once, and it is automatically updated whenever information such as address or card number changes. This seamless and transparent service provides additional ease of use, a reduction in transaction declines and ensures uninterrupted billing. Powerful privacy features protect BillGO and its users; all credit card data is tokenized, which offers a robust layer of security and eliminates fraud liability in case of a breach.

"Our continued investment in payment gateway technology ensures we stay at the forefront of the industry, giving us the ability to support more innovative applications such as BillGO," said John Hughes, general manager of GlobalOnePay. "Our global payment gateway provides high performance and reliability, and we are thrilled to play an essential role in BillGO's processing of payments and user acquisition growth strategy."

As an API driven payment platform, one of GlobalOnePay's goals is to lower costs by reducing time and effort associated with integration. Directly integrating with the platform provides a highly flexible implementation, regardless of the merchant's processing environment, either iOS or Android. In addition, its mobile software development kit and powerful eCommerce API allows app developers to deploy new functionality faster and easier than ever.
