Gemalto: Meetic Group integrates Gemalto's Netsize direct mobile operator billing to offer seamless mobile payment for users

Amsterdam, May 18, 2016
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
is supplying Meetic Group, European leader of dating services, with
itsNetsize
direct operator billing solution. The 20 million mobile subscribers of
Numericable-SFR, France's leading cable and telecoms provider are now able to
pay for subscriptions and services quickly and easily via their regular phone
bill. This service can ultimately be extended to other mobile operators and
European countries served by Meetic Group.

Meetic customers are offered the new option on the company's online payment
page, alongside existing credit and debit card facilities. Those choosing
direct carrier billing are identified automatically via their mobile phone,
eliminating the need to enter their number manually. Meetic is therefore able
to reach millions more customers that either do not have access to a bank
card, or simply prefer the speed and simplicity of paying from a mobile
device via their existing phone bill.

Meetic Group can scale up this new payment channel rapidly with additional
mobile operators and in countries beyond France as Gemalto is responsible for
managing the technical platform behind the direct carrier billing process. It
also supports detailed reporting that can automatically be integrated into
Meetic's system, giving the company a clear view of upcoming payments and
return on investment. Netsize also provides analytics (payment count, billing
rate) accessible through a cloud-based platform with a web interface that
allows immediate consultation and/or extraction of reports for integration in
the customer's own reporting tools.

"Direct carrier billing is a flexible and innovative way to enhance mobile
conversion with a frictionless payment user experience
," said Aude Kuznik, Payment Manager of Meetic Group. "We've chosen Gemalto
for their established relationships with mobile
operators, global presence and a proven track record
."

"This contract with Meetic Group reflects our commitment to working as a
payment services provider for digital enterprises in diverse vertical markets
such as social communities, transport, gaming, e-publications and music
," said Benoit Bole, Senior Vice President of Netsize at Gemalto. "With direct
carrier billing, companies across all these sectors can achieve an
immediate step change in customer service and market reach, improving sales
revenues and profitability."
