The site also counts more than 115.8 million page impressions per month (IVW 07/2011). Quoka chose to implement mopay into its portal in order to react to the rising consumer demand for a fast and convenient way of booking premium options for online classifieds. Consumers who utilize mopay at checkout simpl provide their mobile phone number. The amount is then directly billed to their respective mobile phone account.

"mopay is by far the easiest way of paying online," said Patrick G√ľnther, CEO, Quoka. "With the ease and simplicity of providing a mobile phone number, consumers no longer have to provide 16-digit credit card numbers or names and addresses. Especially when talking about micro payments - which is the case with Quoka's premium services - offering a fast and simple payment method is very important. Paying with mopay fully corresponds with our demand for maximum ease-of-use. mopay's best-in-class payouts, professional business support and impressive customer portfolio convinced us to go with the European market leader."
