Finally, things are moving towards digital payment in Pakistan, more aggressively than ever. It seems like, soon we are going to have everything paid through our mobile account.
For movie lovers, there is good news that tickets can now be bought through your JazzCash mobile account.
According to details, JazzCash and Cinepax Cinemas have entered into a joint business understanding through which all the Cinepax theater will have a JazzCash powered payment system. Not only payments can be made on the spot at the theater, but tickets can be purchased from Cinepax’s website through JazzCash payment facility.
Once customers buy the ticket using JazzCash, they can just walk to a dedicated kiosk in Cinepax Cinemas to enter their booking ID and get the printouts of tickets they paid for. Going forward, JazzCash and Cinepax are also planning to utilize NFC payment facilities for ticket purchasing.
Speaking on the occasion, Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, Head of Digital & Mobile Financial Services – Mobilink, stated, “This cinema ticketing service is an answer to the prayers of cinema goers. It provides movie buffs with easy access to booking seats for their favorite movies from the comfort of their homes. It also supports our commitment to providing customers with a convenient way of making purchases through a streamlined process demonstrating ease and security.”
“Our partnership enables us to better facilitate our valued customers, and assists us in reducing the pressure on our box office when tickets for blockbusters go on sale,” added Mohsin Yaseen, GM Marketing – Cinepax Cinemas.
Mobilink recently rebranded its mobile account platform by changing the name from Mobicash to JazzCash.
