Years of experience in the online video gaming industry have given us the opportunity to work with clients in all cross-industry segments, including: AAA games via digital distribution, MMORPG's and Virtual Worlds as well as Casual and Social Games like browser games and MMO-lite. This experience has enabled us to identify and address the opportunities and challenges you as a gaming platform face, such as:
Offering your players the right billing models that suit both the game and their wallets is crucial. Whether your business model is based on download-to-own (DTO), subscriptions, pay-per-play or item selling via micro payments or account credits, there are billing strategies and payment methods to suit each option. At GlobalCollect, we are able to handle them all via our online payment platform WebCollect.
The gaming market is extremely diverse. What is the preferred payment method for younger gamers? What are the best local payment methods in emerging markets? In our portfolio we offer all standard payment methods such as credit cards, but on top we specialize in alternative ones: eWallets, prepaid cards or vouchers are popular with younger players or in emerging markets that don't yet have much credit card penetration. We also have a large variety of local payment methods ranging from Boleto's in Brazil to iDeal real time banking in the Netherlands, to name but a few. GlobalCollect offers you the most suitable solution for any gaming platform or community.
While Gold Farming is an inevitable part of online gaming, measures can be taken to minimize the transaction risk. We offer a customized Fraud Screening Service, which takes all variables of your business into account while transactions are pre-checked for fraudulent use of credit cards or those known to be linked to recognized gold farmers. Our scalable Fraud Screening Service furthermore features a range of integrated fraud reduction tools from renowned partners to maximize transaction safety, including customized business rules, neural networks to detect suspicious behaviors and patterns, and IP geolocation data to determine the real-world location of a web visitor and break down consumer details to country, state or city level.
One of the fundamentals for online payments in the gaming industry is the necessity to process payments quickly. The payment methods we offer such as cards, eWallets and direct debits via real-time banking are processed instantaneously through our real-time online interface WebCollect. Here your payments are fraud-screened, reconciled, authorized, cleared, and reported in real-time - no patience needed.
