Canadian gamers looking to replace credit cards and PayPal for online purchases
Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
The DebitWay.ca corporate blog, “The New Voice of the Global Payment Processing Industry” has reported on an important Game Developers Conference 2013 (GDC2013) session aimed at discussing the future of alternate payments in the gaming industry in an article titled “What To Watch For At The Game Developers Conference 2013 – Part 1” that discusses the move away from credit cards and PayPal for online gaming purchases by Canadian gamers.
The GDC13 conference which runs from March 25th to the 29th will feature a panel discussion including Albert Donahue, Chief Executive Officer for Payelp Global, Michael Frasier, Senior Director of Business Development for InComm, Ryan Ivers, Senior Sales Manager for Skrill/Moneybookers and Jonathan Newall, Director of U.S. Sales for SafetyPay that will enlighten game developers on “which payment options lead the way in emerging regions (including Latin America, Russia & More) and how alternative payment service providers can help gaming companies earn more revenue abroad.”
Mentioned in particular in the GDC2013 biography for Jonathan Newall of SafetyPay, a DebitWay.ca payment service provider, is his company’s reach into the Canadian market which has been spearheaded through the use of payment options supplied by DebitWay.ca to reach a customer base that is quickly moving away from payment options like credit cards and PayPal.
“Our research and data shows that Canadians are moving away from traditional methods of online payment and embracing the security and safety that INTERAC® Online gives them,” explains Rod Tomita, Regional Senior Business Development Manager for DebitWay.ca “and when you look at the growing number of Canadian gamers giving up their credit cards and PayPal accounts to use their debit cards through DebitWay.ca it reinforces the fact that companies like SafetyPay are making a smart investment for gamers in the Canadian market.”
In a country where almost 60% of the population considered themselves gamers in 2011, and the average age of that demographic being 33-years-old, there are clearly huge benefits to offering Canadians the types of alternative payment forms that they are searching for, and using much more often.
