BOKU is a mobile online payments company. The company is based in San Francisco with offices in Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Boku was born out of a desire to create a frictionless payment system allowing a mobile phone number to be used as a safe and secure payment instrument. In 2009, we partnered with mobile operators around the world to enable their subscribers to purchase virtual goods simply using their mobile number. We've grown to become the leading global mobile payments network servicing 68 countries through more than 250 carrier partners, connected to merchants such as Facebook, EA, Sony, Spotify, Lookout, and Riot Games.

Our team strives to push the future of payments by partnering with carriers globally, ushering in a new era of mobile-enhanced payments.
