AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ticketbud's new checkout experience is designed to make the path to purchase smoother for ticket buyers, translating to increased ticket sales for event organizers.
In the ticketing industry, one of the biggest drivers of purchase conversion is a good mobile interface. In 2019 Ticketbud is rolling out the best mobile ticketing experience in the industry. We have a new checkout flow and interface, with Apple Pay and Google Pay fully integrated in the checkout experience. It's as easy as clicking a button. Reducing the friction at checkout allows event organizers to convert more sales from their event page. We're excited about this latest rollout and are already deep into other projects expanding our mobile optimization. Kayhan Ahmadi, CEO of Ticketbud
Event organizers with the most to gain: A mobile optimized checkout is particularly important for organizers of multi-day pop-up events, hospitality, and events targeting millennials. With an audience already on mobile, value lies in quick impulse purchase opportunities.
While significant pre-purchase research is done on mobile, conversion rates are lower. An optimized mobile checkout experience provides an opportunity for growth, with e-commerce growth primarily being driven by mobile consumers using smartphones and tablets (Statista). Mobile is projected to reach 54% of total e-commerce by 2021, according to BigCommerce. Choosing a mobile first ticketing partner is going to offer a significant advantage.
