AstroPay Launches Customisable API for Merchants

AstroPay, a global leader in online payment solutions, has launched a customisable API to support merchants in securely managing and facilitating their payment needs.

The new function offers merchants the possibility to process withdrawals from a customisable API that adapts to the merchant’s requirements for security and velocity. This means, with a custom API integration, merchants can freely process withdrawals easily, offering their customers a variety of local payment methods through AstroPay.

“Merchants want to offer customers the best experience possible with the ability to process withdrawals easily. Our withdrawal solution removes any friction without compromising on user experience. The API is designed to adjust to any workflow and security checks the merchant has to undergo – it is highly flexible, reliable and easy to adopt,” Mikael Lijtenstein, CEO of AstroPay, said.

Both merchants and customers enjoy residual benefits from the API integration. The withdrawal solution is very easy to use, regardless of whether the user has an account with AstroPay or not. Just by following simple steps, users can collect money into the wallet, which can be withdrawn or deposited. The flow for customers is simple, they can select the option to withdraw money with AstroPay at the merchant’s site without the need of entering any data, and then they can collect their money in their AstroPay wallet.

AstroPay currently supports two options to integrate this host-to-host API, either the merchant wants to achieve a closed loop, which means they send the funds to the same user who deposited on the site, or the merchant opts to provide a cashout method for all users, which means they can transfer the money from the merchant into their digital wallet.

The company has made a significant leap in the rankings, advancing three positions to secure the fourth spot. The achievement is underscored by a 1.1% increase in market share, reflecting a substantial gain in visibility and preference among online casino operators and players. This rise reflects Amusnet’s growing influence and effectiveness in the Italian market, demonstrating the company’s leading place among the industry’s top providers.

Several notable accomplishments have bolstered Amusnet Italy’s presence in the country.

Getting Sticky with It: Why Affiliate Traffic Should be About Quality Not Quantity

Getting Sticky with It: Why Affiliate Traffic Should be About Quality Not Quantity
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

In a highly competitive “bonus blitzing” affiliate market, the only real winner is the bonus hunter. These affiliates may be sending traffic through to their partners in volume, but many of their users are just looking to play through a good deal, never to return.

At Slots Temple, we believe the “stack ‘em high, watch ‘em fly” approach to aggressive bonus-driven traffic no longer flies. We wanted to focus on improving the quality of the traffic and that meant doing things differently.

We began life as a site that offered free demo games and slots tournaments, and this helped to build a highly engaged base of players that genuinely loved playing slots. But we wanted to take this to the next level.

When we were awarded a UKGC gambling license in 2022, it meant we could offer cash prizes for our free tournaments. And then the next logical step was real-money tournaments in the UK with juiced-up prize pools, and ultimately real-money slots.

To create better quality traffic, you need to engage with your customers to better understand them and foster loyalty. It helps if you have a unique value proposition to increase the stickiness of your brand and engage audiences more effectively.

Our real money tournaments are a real UVP and are proving wildly popular with our users. The stakes we offer are low. You can play a slots tournament for as little as 1p, and the free-play model remains a large part of what we do – exclusively so outside the UK.

Ultimately, we want to be a safe place for players, which is why offering low stakes games is important. It’s about fostering a player base that trusts us and feels comfortable playing with us.

Yes, we’re blurring the lines between affiliate and operator, but our players know we’re not just chasing profits at the expense of everything else. Ultimately, our players see us primarily as a destination for fun play and prizes, and it’s important that we maintain that balance. If they thought we were simply out to rinse them, we’d lose their trust, and they wouldn’t come back.

Instead, it’s about offering more choice and increasing that stickiness. It also helps us better understand what games our players like to play so that we can offer more personalized recommendations.

And this is how real-money slots tournaments can really increase the quality of traffic. If a player has been playing a certain slot in a real-money tournament, for example, and wants to play at a partner site, we can guarantee that we are referring a player who is already highly engaged with the game and is ready to transition to higher stakes.

Of course, within the framework of real-money tournaments, it’s important to continue diversifying offerings by devising new formats. We have turbo tournaments, risk tournaments — a multitude of formats and price points so everyone can play the way they want to.

Our real-money tournaments are further enhanced by what was always a highly gamified platform. So, we have leaderboards, Xpoints, rewards chests, and challenges.

Continuous challenges, incentives and rewards keep users engaged over the long term. These elements can appeal to users’ competitive nature and desire for achievement, as they play for bragging rights. This enhances social elements and encourages them to engage frequently with the product

Adding fun and playful elements enhances the user experience beyond the tournaments themselves. Regular rewards and recognition prevent burnout and keep users motivated. And engaged and motivated players are more likely to become passionate about the brand.

Creating a player base that produces true value to your affiliate partners requires a number of the right ingredients, plus a lot of care and attention. But the affiliate landscape is changing, and affiliates need to get creative to get sticky.

iDenfy Launches New AI-powered Utility Bill Verification Tool

Published

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

iDenfy, a Lithuania-based identity verification and fraud prevention software provider, has launched its new automated utility bill verification solution. This innovative tool is designed to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the proof of address (PoA) process, as well as provide businesses with a powerful tool to ensure anti-money laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance.

iDenfy’s automated utility bill verification service uses advanced AI to extract and compare utility bill information with customer details in multiple non-Latin languages within approximately 20 seconds. This new addition to iDenfy’s RegTech service package includes key features such as full name verification, as the system extracts and compares the full name on the utility bill with the customer’s provided details, as well as address validation, which verifies the user’s full address in any language or format. This helps companies scale, especially those that operate in global markets or have various partners from different jurisdictions.

According to Domantas Ciulde, CEO of iDenfy, this is a must in today’s landscape as regulations evolve and companies like crypto platforms or fintechs are required to conduct address checks. However, according to Ciulde, there’s a challenge when it comes to user experience, as additional checks like PoA verification add friction for the end user. For this reason, iDenfy’s team wanted to balance out the time that it takes for the customer to complete the address verification by tailoring a balanced solution, utility bill verification.

“With the utility bill verification solution, our goal was to streamline the process and use AI to widen our capabilities, in this case, accept new formats in more different languages for companies that want to scale faster and offer their customers a seamless address verification check,” Domantas Ciulde, CEO of iDenfy, said.
