Khalti, a mobile wallet (digital) and payment service provider in Nepal, has launched QR-code based event ticketing facility on its platform. Now, users can buy paperless event tickets from Khalti’s mobile app and website and make cashless payments.
Khalti has introduced a dedicated 'Event' section on its app and website from where event organizers across Nepal can publish their events on Khalti’s platform, whereas, users can proceed to event ticket booking and payments.
As per the press statement released by Khalti the launch of this feature is aimed at making work of both event organizers and event goers easier through seamless digital ticketing and payment system. The system will be useful for ticket booking of any events happening across Nepal, from sports matches to LIVE concerts among others.
Quoting Amit Agrawal, Director of Khalti about the app launch, it stated, “With the launch of this online ticketing system, we are hopeful that event organizers will be able to sell tickets with far less effort. Similarly, the hassle of buying tickets for audiences will be eliminated to a great extent. Users will be able to buy tickets much advance in time and make cashless payments from their mobile phone.”
Khalti's electronic ticketing system is expected to help event organizers save the costs of printing and distributing the tickets to their target audiences. Meanwhile, event goers will save money while booking tickets. They will be provided cashback on every ticket purchased, that ranges upto 50 percent of the ticket price as per the press statement.
After booking tickets from Khalti, users will get QR-code of the ticket and its downloadable PDF file inside Khalti app and website. They can show the same QR-code on their smartphone at the entrance gate of the event where event organizers will scan and verify the ticket.
