SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/18/11 -- BilltoMobile™, the leading provider of mobile payments for web purchases, today announced a Direct Mobile Billing Gateway Service Provider agreement with Sprint (NYSE: S), which will allow Sprint customers to charge online purchases directly to their Sprint bill. Once implementation is complete in the coming months, merchants and payment resellers using BilltoMobile's mobile payment service will be able to offer this payment option to Sprint customers.

"On the heels of our Sprint Mobile Wallet launch, we are pleased to work with BilltoMobile™ to present an additional payment option that will allow Sprint subscribers to conveniently and safely complete purchases on the Web," said Kevin McGinnis, vice president of Sprint Product Platforms. "Our agreement with BilltoMobile represents another step forward in our efforts to provide our customers with the most innovative services and applications on the market."

"Partnering with Sprint represents a major milestone for BilltoMobile, as it expands our reach to a vast majority of wireless subscribers in the U.S.," said Denise Archer, vice president of carrier partnerships, BilltoMobile.
