BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) - LevelUp wants everyone to be able to pay with their phones. Like, everyone. And starting today, we're delighted to invite the Windows Phone community to ditch their wallets and start paying with LevelUp.
This is great news for Windows Phone users, because LevelUp lets consumers save big, an average of $30-40 per month, just by paying with their phones. LevelUp is great for businesses, too, offering zero payment processing fees and providing value in the form of campaigns that help businesses grow.
"The whole team here at LevelUp is working day and night to make sure that you can pay with your phone at your favorite merchants all over the country. Half of our job is inviting merchants to stop paying outrageous credit card processing fees and join our Interchange Zero payment network," said Seth Priebatsch, chief ninja of LevelUp. "The other half of our job is making sure LevelUp is the best mobile payment experience imaginable for our users, no matter what device they're using."
"With our user-base growing like crazy, bringing LevelUp to Windows Phone was an obvious next step," said Seth. "Windows and Nokia were really proactive and supported us every step of the way in developing an app that's perfectly optimized for Windows Phones. The end result is a sleek, simple, fast LevelUp experience."
"Windows Phone is backed by a rich developer ecosystem that is creating a variety of quality apps and games that take advantage of the phone's unique features and design," said Todd Brix, senior director, Windows Phone Marketplace, Microsoft Corp. "With its fantastic mobile payment experience, LevelUp is a great example of the kind of rich applications that people will find on Windows Phone Marketplace to get the most out of their phone," he continued.
"LevelUp is much more than a mobile payment app. Between the money it saves consumers, the analytics and the zero interchange fees it offers merchants, it has a great value proposition," said Mark Fletcher Director, global partnering & application development, Nokia. "We are thrilled LevelUp gets how the Windows Phone platform can showcase their app, especially on the Nokia Lumia smartphone family, including the new Nokia Lumia 900."
So, Windows Phone users, it's time take out your phone, download the LevelUp app from the Windows Phone Marketplace, then jump, skip, or run to your favorite merchant. For more information about LevelUp, visit www.thelevelup.com.
