LG makes payments simpler on Smart TVs

LG has joined forces with global digital commerce platform Paymentwall to give customers easier access to paid apps, movies, games and online retailers through its webOS Smart TV platform.

More than 140 different payment methods will now be accepted in over 200 countries. This integration will allow LG customers to enjoy a wider selection of paid content globally via the LG app store.

Customers have simply to click the ‘Buy Now’ button and enter a credit or debit card number for online purchases. LG webOS Smart TV owners will also get support for payment via desktops, laptops, tablets or mobile devices using QR codes and other secure validation protocols.

Said Brian Kwon, president and chief executive at LG’s Home Entertainment Company: “By collaborating with Paymentwall, we’re able to evolve the smart TV purchasing experience on the LG webOS platform much faster than if we had worked alone. This partnership is another example of how LG’s collaborative effort has elevated us into one of the leaders in the global smart TV industry.”
