Tickets.com Launches New Google Pay Mobile Ticketing Integration

Tickets.com Launches New Google Pay Mobile Ticketing Integration
December 5, 2018

As part of its vision to continuously develop and integrate ticketing technology that redefines the patron experience, Tickets.com announced its launch of Passes in Google Pay™ - making it the first technology provider to extend the convenience of Google Pay tickets and mobile entry to Android users in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

The new Google Pay feature for Tickets.com partners in the APAC region will debut in Australia ahead of Santa Claus Pub Crawl, a 25-year-old charity event taking place in the NSW city of Wollongong on 8th December. 


Tickets.com has been a long-standing partner for the event, dating back to 2010. Funds raised from ‘the longest continually run Santa Claus Pub Crawl in the world’ go directly to assisting disadvantaged children in the Illawarra via programs managed by the Salvation Army in Wollongong. Last year’s event raised more than $129,000.

Neil Webster, Chairman of Santa Claus Pub Crawl for Charity stated "we're honoured that Tickets.com has chosen our event to launch Google Pay. As an event that strives to provide the best experience for all its attendees, having Google Pay to streamline the ticketing process, just adds to the uniqueness we are renown for.

"Over the years, we've worked closely with the amazing team at Tickets.com to make Santa Claus Pub Crawl just a little better each year, and now we think we've reached the pinnacle.”

Tickets.com offers the benefits of Google Pay through integration with MyTickets™ - the patron-facing Tickets.com technology for managing inventory and account details.

MyTickets account holders can manage their tickets, add them to Google Pay, and enter participating venues easier than ever before. Google Pay, a secure digital wallet and online payment platform, makes it simple to store and retrieve event tickets and boarding passes, send money, or cash in on rewards.

On working with Tickets.com, Google Pay Product Manager Prakash Hariramani commented added "we have created a rich ticketing experience that benefits users and partners.

"Tickets.com is a forward-thinking ticketing and technology provider that puts its clients’ patrons at the forefront of its development and now, by integrating with Google Pay, it continues to revolutionise the ticketing experience.”

Hayley Dobbs, Service Delivery Manager at Tickets.com added “we are continuously seeking new developments to offer our partner venues the latest advances in technology and consumer trends, bringing increased efficiencies to the ever-increasing expectation of patrons for smart and secure mobile experiences.”
