Game publisher starts online prepaid payment service

VIDEO game publisher Digital Media Exchange recently expanded its online payment gateway, MobiusOnline (www.mobiusonline.net/), to allow for purchasing other game and non-game related prepaid cards issued by Globe, Globelines, Smart Telecommunications, PLDT Vibe, Sun Cellular, Infocom, Level-Up! among others.

The inclusion of non-DME owned cards is part of the company’s expansion program from game publishing to other online services. Its current product lines are the online games MU Online, GunBound and GoPets.

The MobiusOnline service, which uses a virtual currency called ePoints, was previously limited for prepaid cards payment to players of DME games. The website is being reconstructed to accommodate online purchasing of other items.

DME President Jojo Añonuevo said the company would be expanding the MobiusOnline service, eventually including other retail firms and merchants in the food and beverage business.


Current MobiusOnline partners include PinoyDVD.com, GreenArcher.net,

Atenista.net, Peyups.com, USTexchange.com, and PinoyExchange.com.

More merchants are expected to sign up with MobiusOnline by the end of the year.

Añonuevo said the company is currently talking to the venture capital investors such as Japan Asia Investment Corporation, the California Pacific Capital and a private Taiwanese investor for additional capital for its expansion.

“We’re looking at about 5 million US dollars for our B sector funding,” Añonuevo said.

Añonuevo did not elaborate on specifics of their expansion plans but said that the company is now focusing on online digital content, targeted at both local and international markets.
