Live Gamer Launches Pay+ for Turn-Key Global Monetization

Live Gamer has launched Pay+, an advanced transactional product which allows digital content providers to immediately start selling content on a global basis through the top performing payment methods in over 180 countries. Digital content providers who want to sell their content on a global scale often struggle when choosing among payment methods, often settling for credit cards only, which on average represent a missed revenue opportunity of 50% to90% in an international context. With Pay+, content providers can jump-start their global digital sales in a quick, cost-effective way; while consumers will benefit from the product's global payment coverage that allows them to buy digital goods with their preferred payment method no matter where they are located. Pay+ can be configured without the need of integrating individual gateways or payment methods, by simply following step-by-step video tutorials. Pay+ includes a live testing environment where one can simulate users from any supported country. A single agreement with Live Gamer also reduces lengthy contracting cycles. Beyond speed and cost-effectiveness, Pay+ represents a complete solution, handling a number of related services including PCI DSS-compliancy, fraud mitigation, VAT/sales tax handling, and end-user transactional customer support. All of this can be set up quickly and can easily scale to support any number of end users. Digital content providers can start monetizing their product now by requesting a product demo on the Live Gamer website and benefit from the product's many features including: payment methods in 180 countries including credit, debit, online banking, local, alternative, pre-paid, e-wallets and mobile; coverage includes US, Canada, Europe but special focus on high-growth markets including South East Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Turkey; Quick Integration: step-by-step video tutorials, a single HTML configuration file, live testing environment; Complete Localization in 15+ languages; Multi-currency support; PCI-DSS Compliance; US-EU Safe Harbor, Massachusetts and Canada privacy and regulations Compliance; Fraud mitigation services; Administration tool complete with daily transactional reports.
