Monumental Partnership For PayByCash

Nottingham, UK. 17 March 2008– Monumental Games offer card-free payment options to licensees of the Monumental Technology Suite, thanks to a new partnership with PayByCash.

PayByCash, who since 1998 has been empowering non-credit-card customers and the businesses that want to reach them, have announced a new partnership with Monumental Games that integrates over 60 alternate payment solutions with the Monumental Technology Suite.

For licensees of the Suite that select the PayByCash payment package, the reach of their MMO Games or Online Worlds is extended to the millions of potential customers that either do not have, or do not wish to use, credit cards.

“The enabling services of PayByCash fit well with our aims of giving licensees a competitive edge,” says Paul Mayze, Business Development Director at Monumental.“With this one partnership we are integrating the ability to turn on over fifty alternative payment options.”

The Monumental Technology Suite (MTS) is a complete suite of tools that allows organisations to develop Virtual Worlds and Online Games for a wide range of applications (including computer based training (CBT), entertainment, corporate intranets, and collaborative environments). PayByCash™ connects merchants who want to reach a global consumer with customers who want or need the ability to pay for goods or services without a credit card.

“Providing online game developers alternate payment methods is essential, not only for reaching an international audience, but for any of the growing population of potential customers who prefer and trust non-credit card online payment solutions,” noted Kevin Higgins, CEO of PayByCash.“We have been working with online and virtual world game providers for ten years. Over 150 online games rely on our services to expand and enhance their revenues.”
