Hi Lindsay,
We need your assessment and review with VZX on how this could be implemented.
Thanks!

This is a larger question where we will have to pull in a partner and keep Bango on/ change the Bango agreement to support Verizon. Turning payments on with a carrier is no small task (depending on what we need to do for the Mozilla side) and will need to be treated accordingly. 

Bango is aware of the possible need but I am not sure exactly what is needed as well as when it will be needed. The review I did looks like we will need a different payment system than we currently have. 

Integration with Bango and their standard payment flow? Who is going to take over the cost of Bango? What engineers do we have available to implement as the payments team engineers currently work on AMO?

Verizon (Charlie, Roshan, Art) spoke with Lindsay and David on 10/30. Lindsay will be investigating whether prior Mozilla project with Boku (code in place, never commercialized) could be leveraged. Verizon has existing traffic flow from Boku to Verizon that could be utilized.
