Cayenne Entertainment Technology Co (紅心辣椒), the nation’s fourth-largest video game company by sales, yesterday said it plans to include the third-party payment platform of its domestic rival MacroWell OMG Digital Entertainment Co (OMG, 歐買尬) in the company’s online transaction processing system from next month.
Meanwhile, starting next month, OMG’s customers are to be able to use Cayenne’s prepaid game card, called the “Chili Game Card,” to purchase virtual goods or services that are offered in OMG’s games, Cayenne said in a statement posted on its Web site.
“Given that OMG’s third-party payment platform, run by the company’s subsidiary, Allpay Financial Information Service Co Ltd (歐付寶), is one of the most widely used third-party payment tools in the country, we expect Cayenne and OMG’s strategic collaboration to benefit both companies and their customers,” Cayenne president Joe Teng (鄧潤澤) said.
Teng said Cayenne’s customers are to be able to make online payments for Cayenne’s games more safely and conveniently using Allpay’s third-party payment platform.
OMG chief executive Calvin Lin (林一泓) said Allpay’s third-party payment platform can prevent online game players from being deceived in transactions and better protect gamers’ rights, Cayenne’s statement cited Lin as saying.
