GoToWorld.com, a portal that pays users to surf the internet, hopes to build global appeal by enabling consumers to access its services in any language using wireless technology.
The company is integrating its portal 2TheMart.com's ecommerce website and AirTrac's Wireless Web By Voice service to provide users with Web Phone Surfing and language translation technology. It has just signed a letter of intent to acquire a majority stake in 2theMart.com.
The aim is to enable anyone with a telephone to call a toll free number anywhere in the world and 'listen' in realtime to all of GoToWorld.com's content and services, including shopping, in the language of their choice.
The company's content includes stock reports, news, weather reports, personal emails, ecommerce product information and Paid Earnings Statements.
GoToWorld.com operates on a revenue sharing model and pays its members for every minute they access its website and the Get Paid Mini-Portal. Members also earn money for every minute someone they refer uses the Mini-Portal.
The referral system has three levels, with no limit to the total number of referrals users are paid for.
Ian Simpson, GoToWorld.com's founder and chief executive, said: "In the near future, anyone with a telephone can surf or shop at GoToWorld.com and earn money. Today's internet is an exploding global community."
