FilmFlex Movies, the provider of the online movie service used by Film4oD, has added PayWizard as an online payment mechanism. The first deployment of the PayWizard e-wallet is now live on the Film4oD website.
FilmFlex Movies is the sixth customer to deploy the PayWizard platform since the beginning of the year; existing customers include Racing UK (Android/iPhone apps) and Omnimotion (online gaming). A number of as-yet unannounced customer contracts are slated for deployment during Q4 2011.
Film4oD customers simply select the films they want to watch, register for a PayWizard account (if they haven't registered already), top up their PayWizard account balance and pay quickly and easily using the PayWizard e-wallet. The e-wallet holds digital versions of a consumer's credit/debit cards, the current balance, and various personal data. It also facilitates continual card authorisation for true 'one-click' purchases and can handle a range of innovative subscription models.
Hayden Punter, Head of Finance at FilmFlex Movies commented: "PayWizard is ideal for our online movie service, which is used by companies such as Film4, because it makes the payment process painless and fast. We also liked PayWizard's flexibility, security and ease of use. Film4oD customers now have the option to pay for movies quickly and easily using the PayWizard e-wallet."
Jamie Mackinlay, Commercial Director at PayWizard, added: "As the provider of a high quality online movie streaming service to some of the UK's best-known brands, FilmFlex Movies wanted to deliver a new type of payment experience that is fast, easy to use and friction-free. The PayWizard e-wallet fits the bill because it supports true 'single-click' purchases and enables FilmFlex Movies' customers to experiment with a range of different payment models in addition to pay-per-movie."
PayWizard supports transactions made on multiple devices, including online, tablets, smart phones, connected TV's and digital set-top boxes. The complete PayWizard payment solution delivers much more than just an e-wallet: PayWizard features a web-based management dashboard that provides detailed real-time activity reports as well as valuable, actionable marketing information on viewer behaviour. This dashboard provides instant feedback on transactions, campaign effectiveness, consumption patterns and revenues and can be used to drive the development of personalised promotions and informed and creative cross-device marketing opportunities.
