LEAWOOD, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
epay, a division of Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: EEFT) and a leading
prepaid and payments processor in the U.S., continues to lead the
industry by expanding its product portfolio to offer a PIN-on-receipt
delivery for Xbox LIVE® Gold subscriptions and Microsoft
Points on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system
from Microsoft. This new offering comes after successful epay launches
from other digital content providers such as Rixty, paysafecard and
Canta y Llama. epay's U.S. retail partners can now offer consumers many
different types of content without carrying card inventory in their
locations. Consumers can leverage gaming and entertainment cards sold
through epay retailers to purchase movies, music, virtual goods, game
add-ons and subscriptions in online environments, without having to
input credit card information online.
epay's global network of approximately 293,000 retail locations and
innovative payment solutions will help digital content providers achieve
their objective of enabling more consumers access to digital content
available through their services.
"With the launch of this product, epay provides a convenient way for
retailers to sell Xbox LIVE Gold subscriptions and Microsoft Points,"
said Eric Mettemeyer, Managing Director, epay Americas/Asia Pacific.
"Retailers benefit because it is a globally recognized product that
drives foot traffic, there is no inventory and it's an easy add-on to
their existing epay suite of products. epay was already processing these
products in Australia and New Zealand; now it is live in the U.S. and we
are anxious to offer this convenience to Xbox and Microsoft consumers in
additional epay markets."
