Berlin, 2 September 2010 – 3D online world Twinity, the social community based on real people and realistic replicas of the world’s most vibrant cities, is letting its members pay for virtual items using their cell phones.
From new clothes for their 3D avatar to the latest furniture for the stylish 3D home to thousands of other virtual items, Twinizens from over 50 countries worldwide can now have instant fun by using their cell phones to go on a shopping spree in Twinity.
Twinity utilizes the mobile payment system of mopay web. The UI integration into the Twinity Global purchase on twinity.com provides members with a mobile payments experience, letting their charges automatically appear on their mobile-phone bill.
“Mobile payment enables our members to use the easiest and most convenient way to purchase Globals to get the latest trends in Twinity”, says Jochen Hummel, CEO of Metaversum, the company behind Twinity.
Twinity makes most of its revenue from the sale of Globals, the world’s virtual currency, to its members, who use that currency to buy virtual items.
