Socialwise, Inc., a leader in the thriving free-to-play online games in the western market, recently announced that the company has partnered with Gala-Net, Inc. to offer the BillMyParents payment system as a payment option on the gPotato gaming portal. BillMyParents, a unique youth payment system, allows teens to shop online without a credit card and gives parents the ability to easily track and control their teenâ€™s spending.
This new partnership with gPotato will add six online game titles and approximately five million registered users, giving Socialwise the ability to provide payment services to more than 20 million registered gamers. In addition, gPotato users will be able to use BillMyParents to purchase accessories and virtual currency for game play upgrades and parents can quickly and easily deny or accept payments.
Jim Collas, chief executive officer of Socialwise, stated, â€œAs we integrate new partners over the next few months, we will gain exposure to a rapidly growing number of gamers currently totaling roughly 20 million registered users.â€ He continued, â€œWe believe online gaming represents a significant opportunity to expose BillMyParents to our target teen and tween demographics.â€
