BARCELONA, Spain - StandardPay, which specializes in offering payment solutions to European adult merchants, has announced it has formed a partnership with licensed Microsoft Windows Media digital-rights management service and solution provider MediaKey. Both companies have fully integrated their respective applications, allowing webmasters to sell DRM-protected content and accept secure payments from a global audience, according to a press release.
"We are very pleased to count StandardPay among our world-leading billing partners," said MediaKey Chief Executive Officer Leon Standly. "We strive to offer competitive and innovative solutions, and the integration with StandardPay will greatly benefit current and future European clients. Last time I checked, it was pretty difficult to obtain a high-risk merchant account, but StandardPay goes the extra mile and will help clients obtain a complete online multi-currency payment solution, including an Internet Merchant Account."
MediaKey DRM-solution helps prevent piracy of digital media. MediaKey’s DRM system allows consumers to obtain digital-media licenses legitimately and more easily, while at the same time protecting the rights of content owners. MediaKey supports a variety of billing models, such as rental, download-to-own, and pay-per-view billing.
"StandardPay and MediaKey have a shared view on the importance of fighting fraud," added Standly. "That’s one of the reasons why MediaKey’s DRM solutions and secure payment systems are a great liaison. We may fight fraud using different technologies, but at the end of the day, our combined services have been designed to help webmasters make money and secure their revenue streams."
