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 the fourth quarter, according to PayWizard. Film4oD customers can select the films they want to watch, register for a PayWizard account, and top up their PayWizard account balance and pay 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 ‘one-click’ purchases and can handle a range of innovative subscription models.
Hayden Punter, head of finance at FilmFlex Movies said: “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, said: “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 will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 13.185
