Through subscription billing and microtransactions, companies can take advantage of digital payment practices, making it easier for consumers to pay for services with cash from their e-wallets or from other means such as PayPal or store-bought gift cards. The platform is also scalable and adapts to cope with spikes in demand.
“Leading providers of streaming video understand that in order to win and retain customers, the billing platform has to be secure, fast and reliable,” said Gene Hoffman, CEO of Vindicia. “For Comic-Con HQ, the net result of an effective subscription billing process is more paying customers and minimal churn.”
