FilmFlex Movies pockets PayWizard e-wallet

September 2, 2011

Online movie service FilmFlex Movies has added payment solution PayWizard as an online payment mechanism. The first deployment of the PayWizard e-wallet is now live on the Film4oD website.

FilmFlex Movies is the sixth customer to deploy the PayWizard platform since the start of 2011; existing customers include Racing UK (Android/iPhone apps) and Omnimotion (online gaming). A number of as-yet unannounced customer contracts are slated for deployment during Q4 2011.

FilmFlex – a  joint venture between Sony Pictures Television and The Walt Disney Company EMEA – is the UK’s leading on-demand movie service provider having managed the VoD movie service on Virgin Media since 2005, with over 60 million buys to date.

Film4oD customers simply select the films they want to watch, register for a PayWizard account (if they haven’t registered already), top up their PayWizard account balance and pay quickly and easily using the PayWizard e-wallet. The e-wallet holds digital versions of a consumer’s credit/debit cards, the current balance, and various personal data.

Hayden Punter, Head of Finance at FilmFlex Movies, said PayWizard made the payment process painless and fast. Jamie Mackinlay, Commercial Director at PayWizard, noted that the the PayWizard e-wallet supported true ‘single-click’ purchases and enabled FilmFlex Movies’ customers to experiment with a range of different payment models in addition to pay-per-movie.
