ESPN Adds Tiltâ€™s Group Payment Tech to Fantasy Football Apps
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
ESPN is launching a new feature that letsFantasy Football playersÂ bring real money to the virtual gameâ€“not placing bets, but paying dues and fees for their online leagues.
ESPNâ€™s vice president of fantasy and premium product,Â George Leimer, said users of the sports networkâ€™s Fantasy Football Web and mobile apps had previously relied on a â€śpatchwork of methodsâ€ť to take care of league dues. That included paying each other in cash offline, sending checks, or using PayPal and other technologies that werenâ€™t built into the user experience of an online fantasy league.
What do League dues pay for? My league is free and I like it that way.
Keeps people from getting too serious. :)
