DebitWay.ca Supplying Gaming Companies A Clear Line Into Canadian Gaming Market

debitwayDebitWay.ca has announced a brand new initiative today on behalf of all Canadian gamers that will make alternative payment methods more available on the market as Canadians shift away from using credit cards and PayPal to pay for online purchases.

“Last week, DebitWay.ca announced extremely promising results for two of our online gaming partners – YorkGame.com and 186card.com – that showed incredible growth for both companies after using our services,” said Nadia Belanger Director of Administration and Accounts for DebitWay.ca. “Because of those announcements the response from Canadian gamers has been incredibly supportive and they have been vocal about the high demand they have for alternatives to using credit cards and PayPal. We’ve heard their voices and are continuing our strong path to not only remain “Canada’s Favourite Way to Pay” but to become “Canada’s Favourite Way to Game” across the country.”

DebitWay.ca partner 186card.com saw an increase of 88 per cent in their sales volume over a one year period using DebitWay.ca services, while DebitWay.ca partner YorkGame.com saw a 63 per cent rise in their sales volume over a two year period. Both companies have attributed their growth squarely on the service, security and solutions offered by partnering with DebitWay.ca.

“Our services and expertise have made DebitWay.ca the “go to” payment service provider for companies looking to break through or expand their reach within the Canadian market,” explained Rod Tomita, Regional Senior Business Development Manager for DebitWay.ca “and as Canadians turn away from using credit cards and PayPal as their preferred form of online payment, we are here to help companies navigate these new waters and help raise their sales volume to incredible heights.”

According to the Entertainment Software Association of Canada‘s 2012 Essential Facts (PDF) study, statistics show that in 2011 at least 58 per cent of Canadians considered themselves gamers and of that percentile the average age of self identified Canadians gamers was 33 years of age. Those numbers add up to an approximate 20million Canadian citizens who not only enjoy gaming, but are shifting away from credit cards and PayPal as their preferred payment source

DebitWay.ca can quickly and easily integrate any existing gaming company to accept DebitWay.ca INTERAC® Online solutions and increase their sales volume significantly. Companies with a proven record of transactions and a commitment to offering their Canadian customers a safe, secure and trusted way to make online payments can email DebitWay.ca directly to learn more at, social(at)debitway(dot)ca.
