Subscriptions API

The Bango subscription service allows you to charge users for your service/content on a regular and recurring basis.

The subscription Web Services API allows you to query actions and events surrounding your subscription service. It allows you to check the status of both the subscription itself (i.e. is the subscription active, has the user paid etc), check the status of an individual payment, or even to cancel an individual subscription.

Direct Billing API

The Bango Direct Billing API allows you to initiate within an on-handset application or a PC web site. In a standard on-handset browser-based payment experience, the user is redirected to a Bango-hosted payment page and asked to accept the charge before being returned to the CP for content delivery.

The Direct Billing API allows you to offer the same clear payment experience outside the browser, supporting scenarios like a PC web site needing to bill a user or an on-handset application. The payment user experience is controlled by and presented by your application or web site - Bango has no direct interaction with the end user.

The Direct Billing API gives you rich real-time information on each billing attempt - was billing successful and if not, exactly why the payment failed (e.g. user out of credit; suspended/hotlined etc). You can use this real-time payment result data to optimize your user experience.

Billing Information API

The Billing Information API allows you to programmatically access the BillRankTM payment method selection and ranking engine so you can check available payment routes and price points in real-time.

  • Retrieve a list of possible payment methods for a specific price point / User combination
  • Retrieve a list of available price points for a given payment route
  • Retrieve a full list of current or past currency conversion rates

The Bango IDXML service is a non-interactive service which leverages the capabilities of the Bango Identifier service to provide user identification of a mobile phone user.

Using information passed to us by mobile carriers and other sources, Bango is able to tell exactly who an end user is, what carrier network they are on and the country they are in.

If you would like to start using this API please contact your Bango account manager or contactsales@bango.com.
