Skout Hooks Up with Billing Revolution to Drive Mobile and Web-based Purchases Within Popular Singles Community
San Francisco, California & Seattle, Washington – August 5, 2009 (AllPayNews.com) – Billing Revolution, a mobile payments and billing solutions company, today announces a partnership with Skout, a location-based dating company, to enable both mobile and web based transactions.
Under terms of the agreement, Billing Revolution will provide its single-click payment solutions to simplify the consumer checkout experience for Skout users. The technology is designed so that individuals can safely and easily purchase gifts or services through their web-enabled phones or computers, while taking full advantage of Skout’s social dating applications.
“As Skout seeks to maintain its lead as "The" mobile dating company in the US”, we see Billing Revolution as a key contributor and strategic partner in this endeavor,” said Skout CEO Christian Wiklund. “When it comes to mobile billing they are unbeatable in implementation, affordability, and customer service.”
“The problem with most dating sites is that consumers don’t have an easy way to purchase the items they want, and the checkout process actually serves as a deterrent to the dating process,” said Michael Dulong, co-founder and senior vice president of business development at Billing Revolution. “Through our payment solutions, Skout is able to provide a simplified payment process that fosters gifting, and encourages interaction between Skout’s mobile community of users.”
Billing Revolution’s ‘single-click’ technology platform will handle the payment processing using credit or debit cards. Through a secure interface accessible on a mobile phone or over the web, Billing Revolution handles the billing, payments, and processing on the back end, allowing Skout to provide its network of customers an easy way to sign up and pay for services and subscriptions. The company’s technology currently works across all web-enabled handsets, carriers, and PCs, and Billing Revolution accepts payments in more than 150 currencies worldwide.

Skout allows singles to chat, share pictures and comments to or about other singles who are either on the same block or the other side of the country.
