Zong was a mobile payment company that allows users to make micropayments on the Internet if they have a postpaid mobile phone. The payments are charged to their mobile phone bills by the mobile operator. The company was acquired by eBay in 2011.
Zong was awarded the 2009 Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award for New Product Innovation in the Mobile Payments category.
On May 2015, Zong disappeared from the web without any public declaration. The website now simply redirects to PayPal.
