BOKU was born out of a desire to create a frictionless payment system allowing a mobile phone number to be used as a safe and secure payment instrument. In 2009, we partnered with mobile operators around the world to enable their subscribers to purchase virtual goods simply using their mobile number. Within 2 years, we grew to become the largest global mobile payments network servicing 66 countries through more than 240 carrier partners, connected to merchants such as Facebook, Disney, EA, and Zynga.
Our team strives to push the future of payments by partnering with carriers globally, ushering in a new era of mobile-enhanced payments in e-commerce and at physical point-of-sale.
Our management team consists of serial entrepreneurs with expertise in web, security, mobile, and financial services. They have held executive roles for Amazon, AT&T, Apple, Bank of America, GE, Google, mBlox, and Paypal.
