The benefits of using Payfast for Quicket online ticket sales
When selling tickets on Quicket, integrating with Payfast brings numerous advantages that make the entire process smoother and more efficient. Let’s delve into why event organisers should opt for Payfast:
Speed and effectiveness
The checkout process with Payfast and Quicket is a seamless and swift experience for both event organisers and ticket buyers. Here’s how it works:
Selection of Tickets:
After selecting their desired event and ticket type on Quicket, attendees proceed to the checkout page.
Payment Method Choice:
When it comes to payment, attendees have the option to choose from a variety of payment methods, thanks to Payfast’s integration. This variety ensures that every potential customer can complete their purchase using their preferred payment method.
Once the payment method is selected, attendees are redirected to Payfast’s secure payment gateway. Here, they can enter their payment details with confidence, knowing that their transaction is protected by advanced security measures.
After successful payment, attendees receive instant confirmation of their ticket purchase. They can access their tickets electronically, eliminating the need for physical tickets or lengthy processing times.
Event organisers can access real-time reporting through Quicket, which is integrated with Payfast. This means you can track ticket sales and revenue instantly, allowing you to make informed decisions and optimise your event’s success.
Give customers more choice
Offering customers a variety of payment options is crucial for maximising ticket sales and customer satisfaction. Payfast provides more than nine payment options, including credit cards, Instant EFT, and digital wallets like SnapScan and Zapper. This diverse array of choices ensures that potential attendees can pay for their tickets using the method they find most convenient and trustworthy.
Comparatively, without Payfast, event organisers may be limited to traditional payment methods, potentially alienating customers who prefer alternative options. By integrating Payfast with Quicket, organisers can tap into a broader audience, thereby increasing the likelihood of ticket sales and ensuring a smoother ticket purchasing experience for all.
Higher customer retention
Higher customer retention is a natural outcome of using Payfast with Quicket. Here’s why:
Trust and Convenience
Payfast is a well-known and trusted payment gateway in South Africa. When attendees see the Payfast option during the checkout process, they are more likely to trust the payment process, resulting in increased conversions.
Familiarity and Ease
Payfast’s integration provides a familiar and user-friendly payment experience. Attendees can complete transactions quickly and easily, reducing the likelihood of abandoned carts or frustration during the checkout process.
For event organisers planning recurring events, providing a consistent and reliable payment method like Payfast encourages previous attendees to return. They know what to expect and are more likely to attend future events when the payment process is efficient and secure.
