Digital River drives profits. At launch… and years later.

In the last two years, the complexity of successfully monetizing games has increased by a factor of 10. Further, the need to alter monetization strategies post game launch has changed from an “if” to a “when.” Add to this the challenge of maximizing worldwide profit while removing the risk of fines, fraud and security issues and you end up with a very large need for technology and expertise. Digital River fulfills your needs as only a billion dollar e-commerce giant can. Your net gains will be more profits and more time to focus on creating fun.


At every step, you are in control and agile

Our e-commerce systems support thousands of game monetization strategies. This depth and breadth allows you to execute the exact business model that you need. Further, it allows you to quickly capitalize on shifts in customer preferences as your game matures.


Optimize ARPU by blending micro-transaction, virtual currency, cloud-based subscription, episodic, user-generated content, secondary market, advertising, and rental and hard good models.
