PayEase has raised $14.5 million in its latest round of financing, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission cited by VentureWire (sub req).

Based in Santa Clara, but serving the Chinese market, PayEase hasn’t said much publicly. But it says on its Web site that it offers companies a way to deliver mobile payments via SMS to their customers, as well as Internet banking, call centers, and point of sale terminals, and “data mining of customers’ profiles.”

The Chinese don’t widely use credit cards to pay for things online, and they are big users of mobile phones.

Investors in the company’s latest round included the WI Harper Group; Capinfo Company Ltd.; Max Fang, Chairman and Chief Executive of venture firm Maxima Capital Management Inc.; Charles Skibo, chairman and CEO of HouseRaising Inc. and a former CEO of U.S. Sprint, Springboard-Harper Technology Fund, and Tech Alliance Corp., according to the SEC filing.
