Since the early days of browser games in 2005, mopay was the mobile payment solution of choice for many big names in the industry. Now, with online game usage significantly shifting to social networks, mobile payments are emerging as a viable option in the social gaming environment. mopay recently closed deals with 16 social games developers and platforms, bringing the seamless mobile payment experience of mopay to more than 100 new social games worldwide.
