Applications in the Opera Mobile Store from today can be purchased without using a credit card. According to Sameer Merchant, vice president of the company, this was done to make it easier for people to purchase paid applications.

Payment services from other countries also announced their support for the system: InMobi SmartPay and Bango.

At the moment, about 50 thousand applications are available for download in the Opera Mobile Store (this is 20 thousand less than in the Windows Marketplace and 24 thousand more applications than in the Amazon Appstore). The number of downloads varies between 1.5 million per day.
