    Boku

    This page is under development — the features to use Boku as a payment provider haven't yet been implemented in Firefox Marketplace.

    Boku is the payment provider for operator transactions from América Móvil (Telcel). To receive payments for app and in-app purchases from the supported operators you'll need to create a Boku account, bearing in mind that any existing Boku account you may have cannot be used. This page provides a quick start and long guide to the sign up process, as well as links to the relevant pages to complete the process.

    Quick start

    If you're unclear about any of the following instructions, please refer to the Step by step guide.

    1. Click the Create Boku Account button seen below.
    2. In the first Professional Account — Publisher Sign Up — Mozilla Corporation End Merchant page, provide your contact and business details then click Next.
    3. In the second page, enter an account name (Login) and password — the account name must be prefixed "mozilla_" — review the legal agreement and at the end check I Agree, check I accept the Privacy Policy, enter the CAPTCHA and click Create Account.
    4. Your account will now be validated by Boku, usually within 1–2 business days, and an email confirmation sent. To complete the registration process you'll need to click the link provided in the email to validate the email address you entered during sign up. If you don't receive the confirmation email, please check your spam folder. If you haven't received the confirmation email within 3 business days, please contact publishersupport@boku.com.
    5. Sign into Boku with your account details.
    6. Set up a bank account by clicking SETTING on the site menu, then Bank Details on the submenu. On the Bank Details page click Add New Account, provide your bank details and then click Submit.

    8. Return to My Submissions in Firefox Marketplace, open the app you wish to add Boku account details to, then click Compatibility & Payments on the menu. Under Payment Accounts, click then Add a Boku account from the dialog,
    9. You can now complete any remaining details for your app and submit it to review as normal.
