Mobile Carrier Payments - Now Available via SlideME


SlideME & Fortumo









SlideME now supports the option for users to pay via Mobile carrier through our partnership with Fortumo. This is an important milestone for SlideME to bring such a payment option at the store level, as opposed to developers having to implement intruding commerce options within each of their apps. Unfortunately Mobile carrier payments, unlike traditional payment options, have different price points for each country. Such price points do not accommodate the exact set price of an app, nor is it fair to users for such an app price to be fixed to the carriers’ price points per country. This means the same app could be more expensive in one country than another. For this reason SlideME has implemented a feature where any overpayment is credited to the user’s SlideME Wallet balance, which can be used to purchase other apps (or in-app items if the app is using the recently released SlideME In-App-Payments SDK or supported Open In-App Billing).


“3rd party Android app stores are becoming increasingly popular and we are excited to work together with SlideME, one of the leaders in this space. By adding mobile payments to their apps published on SlideME, developers can now earn more revenue from almost 5 billion people who do not have or do not want to use a credit card. With carrier billing, they can now conveniently charge purchases directly to their phone bill”

- Gerri Kodres, SVP of Business Development and Carrier Relations, Fortumo

SlideME announces In-App-Payments SDK, Payouts in bitcoins, and new payment methods


SlideME has several key announcements:  

  1. Availability of the SlideME In-App-Payments (IAP) SDK
  2. Developer Payouts in bitcoins
  3. Mobile billing with many more payment methods to come
  4. Users can earn virtual currency to pay for apps or purchase in-app-items
With the release of the SlideME IAP SDK, developers can monetize their freemium apps (i.e., free to download but include the option for users to purchase in-app-items) distributed via SlideME to the many Android Open Source Project (AOSP) based devices without Google Play Services. In-app purchases for users is seamless as they can continue to use our current or new payment options, including purchasing in-app items through their existing SlideME Wallet.


The sheer volume of non-Google Play enabled devices can no longer be ignored by app publishers as more device vendors are leveraging the AOSP, which does not include the closed-source apps and services like Google Play and Google Maps. Developers should have a distribution strategy for apps being distributed to these AOSP based devices .


Today at MWC, we’re seeing Nokia releasing the Nokia X device based on the AOSP, and therefore without Google Play. SlideME as of today is present on the Nokia X, and many other device manufacturers have preloaded SlideME as a respected alternative to Google Play.





Good news for developers today from SlideME.  Developers have the option to be paid out in Bitcoins or to their Coinbase Wallet instantly.


Are You Looking For Legitimate & Safe Android Apps?

The maturity of the Android OS can really be indicated by the sheer volume of applications available for the platform. How can an Android user be expected to wade through all of these applications to find a quality product they are looking for? How can a developer generate exposure for their applications when the competition is steadily rising? Consider SlideME’s stance on application discovery.

Unlike other stores, SlideME actually inspects and reviews the content and functionality of each application submitted to our store. We don’t just check if the application is compatible and runs properly on multiple devices. We also ensure that the application has some value, may be useful to many users, and is legitimate and legal. 

SlideME does not accept simplistic junk applications, nor do we approve the misleading, scam applications that proliferate on other stores. When you download an application from SlideME, it is either the real deal or it is legitimate application that we make clear is only similar in nature.
