Forging partnerships with leading providers

Among the newly forged partnerships is a significant collaboration with Privacy Vaults Online, Inc. (PRIVO). As a forerunner in childrens online privacy and identity management solutions, PRIVOs partnership with Xsolla aims to amplify direct-to-consumer distribution strategies for game developers. This partnership ensures enhanced payment safety and protection for users.

Furthermore, Xsolla has integrated with AppsFlyer, a premier B2B SaaS/marketing technology enterprise, to provide game developers with cross-platform data-driven insights. Another groundbreaking collaboration has been announced with Crypto.com, a global cryptocurrency platform. This integration will allow Xsollas Pay Station platform users to complete transactions using Crypto.coms checkout solution.

Aiming at fostering positive evolution in the gaming industry

Anton Zelenin, Chief Product Officer, Fintech of Xsolla, commented on the expansion, stating, “At Xsolla, we are not just focused on elevating the gaming experience. We are committed to fostering positive evolution as the industry continually grows. Our collaboration with PRIVO is a testament to our dedication to enhancing video game commerce security, especially for our young gamers and their guardians.”
