Big news for Boku! Big news for Android developers who want to make some dough. Today, Boku announced the production release of our SDK for Android developers; 1-Tap Billing for Android is live in 56 countries.
This SDK opens up significantly expanded revenue opportunities to Android developers via direct carrier billing for in-app purchases. Boku’s Android SDK provides users with a simple 1-Tap purchase process that does not require the collection of personally identifiable information.
The goal here is to provide Android developers the opportunity to massively expand their revenue through in-app purchases. In-app purchases help create a seamless experience so that the customer never needs to leave the game or app in order to complete a transaction. Once integrated, Boku’s Android SDK provides users with a simple 1-Tap purchase process that does not require the collection of credit cards, financial information, user login, or registration through a third-party website.
Upon integration, the SDK is immediately available to the application’s consumer base in 56 countries with no need for additional work on the part of the app developer – This includes more than 32 different languages and 40 different currencies. The SDK supports Android version 1.5+.
All these new features help to increase conversion rates to merchants while providing a seamless and secure purchase experience. Special thanks to all the engineers and their enduring families for making it all possible.
