Global Payments Options For Sony?s EverQuest: Sony Online Entertainment will be using GlobalCollect’s online payment system to expand the online payment options available to gamers in its multi-player EverQuest subscription service (it has about 430,000 subscribers).
While most of the online transactions in the U.S. market are done by credit card, the rest of the world prefers local payment alternatives such as bank debits, checks and wire transfers. GlobalCollect’s WebCollect system combines all these payment methods into one interface, simplifying the payment and collecting process. It supports more than 40 countries, 36 payment methods and twelve languages all through one interface.
Skinny: Expect these kinds of services to grow, as content/entertainment sites try to expand globally.
