Fortumo is making carrier billing on Windows Phone and Windows 8 available to more app developers.

Fortumo have launched a custom version of our Windows in-app purchasing SDK for developers using Unity to build their apps.Integrating carrier billing to your Windows Phone or Windows 8 app built with Unity is now much faster, with no additional development effort needed. Here’s what you need to do to start accepting mobile payments with Fortumo in your app:

  1. Sign up at our homepage and create a Windows in-app purchasing service (note that the same service can be used for both Windows Phone & Windows 8 apps);

  2. Once you have created a service, download the Windows billing library for Unity from your Dashboard;

  3. Integrate the Fortumo Windows in-app purchasing SDK into your app. You can find the guidelines in our Developers Portal;

  4. Make some test payments – if everything works, you’re good to go!

Fortunio are also offering developers  up to $25,000 to cover your integration costs.

You can also check out the campaign that Unity is running to get additional benefits for bringing your apps to Microsoft platforms.
