London, United Kingdom, November 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Europe’s first Mobile Smart Buying Club extends the boundaries of mobile use, in an exclusive partnership with Onebip. Glamoo, the Smart Buying Club, is first in the sector to offer its clients an alternative way of purchasing.
Credit card transactions and bank transfers are giving way to a new payment method: telephone credit. Make a phone call, send a text, surf the net and... pay directly with your mobile.
For the first time, and in collaboration with Onebip, Glamoo is providing its deal-hungry members with a genuine alternative payment option. One simple click allows users to make purchases online with their mobile phone. Purchases can be made instantly without having to use a credit card, or even a bank account. This opens up simple, safe, and reliable online shopping to the full consumer market.
Glamoo is collaborating with one of the sector’s leading organisations to offer this alternative, easily accessible solution for making payments. It has been tailor-made in response to the needs and requests of users of digital services. Glamoo offers range from restaurants to wellbeing treatments, exclusive holidays and amazing experiences.
The founder of Glamoo, Simone Ranucci Brandimarte, explains the concept: “The partnership with Onebip represents a big step ahead in terms of technology, to the advantage of everyone who makes use of the web. From now on there will be another new way of making purchases, with just one fast, safe click.”
The founder of Onebip, Marko Maras, also comments: “We are particularly happy to contribute to the development of Glamoo and to continue to encourage the use of the mobile phone as a means of payment for such things as Collective Buying and Mobile Commerce services.”
There are big advantages for Glamoo members. There is no need to own a credit card. The payment is made in total confidentiality, without displaying the mobile number, and users are guaranteed 100% protection against unauthorized payments. A customer helpline and payment history is available at all times. Every transaction generates a text notification, and an advisory message via email.
