SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind social movie ticketing app, has launched two new digital payment features and options from Google Pay and Samsung. These features expand Atom's current integrations with other digital payment leaders including Chase Pay, Amazon Pay, and Apple Pay. Atom strives to give movie fans secure choices when purchasing movie tickets.
Google recently announced the ability to save tickets to the Google Pay Android App. After a user has purchased tickets using Google Pay, they can save them in the Android App's new Passes tab. When it's showtime, use a phone as a ticket. This feature is an extension of Google Pay, which has been a payment method of Atom's check out process since 2017. Additionally, Atom integrated Samsung Pay as a new in-app payment option for Samsung Smartphone users.
"We're thrilled to offer the largest selection of trusted payment platforms to our customers," said Chris Brucia, Head of Product at Atom Tickets. "Atom Tickets is among the first to use the Save to Google Pay feature, which we know our users will enjoy. This new experience and option to use Samsung Pay, will make it easier than ever for consumers to buy and store movie tickets."
The Atom experience also comes to life across the web, through Atom's partnerships with Amazon, IMDb, Google, Facebook and Instagram. Most recently, the Atom Tickets skill for Amazon Alexa launched with the exclusive ability to buy reserved seats and check out using Amazon Pay. Atom also announced a collaboration with the Honda Innovation team to develop movie ticketing for their Dream Drive project.
How Atom Tickets Works:
The award-winning app re-imagines the most convenient way for users to plan a night out at the movies, including pre-ordering your favorite concessions. The free app and website provide relevant reviews, trailers and synopses to help moviegoers make the best decision on what to see. Atom users can quickly select the movie, theater, showtimes and seats.
Checking out is even easier since Atom has the largest selection of digital payment including Chase Pay, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay (in addition to accepting all major credit cards). After purchasing tickets, users can invite friends and Atom will share the selected showtime and seats with them. At the theater, users skip the box office lines and go directly to the ticket attendants where they simply scan a QR code on their phone (or Apple Watch) to redeem their order.
