AXS Integrates PayPal to Improve Ticket Buying Experience

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AXS and PayPal are working together to streamline the buying, selling and transferring of event tickets sold on AXS ticketing platforms for fans in the U.S. and U.K. Through the agreement announced today, PayPal becomes the official digital payments provider for AXS.

This agreement will support the integration of PayPal across various AXS customer interactions. Fans will be able to enter their PayPal account information at checkout to purchase tickets. They will also be able to receive payments via PayPal for tickets they resell through the AXS Marketplace in order to be reimbursed more quickly. In addition, fans in the United States will be able to use Venmo for purchases - allowing them to split payments easily and efficiently as well as choose to share their experiences in Venmo's social feed.

AXS is a leader in ticketing technologies that help fans get the tickets they want to the events they want to attend. The company's FanSight purchase experience includes both standard and resale tickets on one platform. AXS Mobile ID, an innovative identity-based digital ticketing platform, allows fans to buy tickets and gain entry into events with their mobile devices. Mobile ticketing ensures fans can safely and securely buy, sell and transfer tickets without worrying about paper or PDF tickets that can be easily counterfeited. The addition of PayPal and Venmo as payment options will provide fans with a truly mobile ticketing experience from purchase through performance.

"Fans expect a familiar and secure payment experience to make purchasing tickets to a live event even easier, and integration with PayPal was the obvious choice for us," said Ashish Kapur, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Digital Media at AXS. "Our ticketing platform combines standard and resale tickets so that no event is ever sold out for a fan who wants to attend. Now, with the integration of PayPal, the entire event experience is even more seamless, and we look forward to working with them as we continue to innovate the ticketing process."
