Since our rebrand in Autumn 2016, we’ve doubled down on our efforts to constantly improve the service we offer customers, aiming to fully deliver on our promise of making ticketing better. We’ve continued to develop our website to add extra features that tilt ticket-buying in favour of customers and not touts, creating functions like Waiting List, Remind Me, Re:Sell and Cool:Off.
The latest feature we’re excited to launch is the integration of Apple Pay – Apple’s revolutionary way of paying for goods and services both online and in the high street, and will now be included as a method payment on our Skiddle App – the UK’s most popular events app. If you’re not already an Apple Pay convert, all you have to do to start using it is go to your settings, hit Wallet & Apple Pay, take a photograph of your card, and once verified by your bank you’re ready to use it with any contactless card device, making it ideal for quick, small purchases.
Apple Pay really comes into its own when making payments within apps. Checking out is as easy as placing your finger on the touch ID, and removes the hassle of finding your card and manually keying in all the details every time you want to buy something, streamlining the process infinitely. It’s private and secure too – your card details are never stored. Instead, Apple uses a device-specific number and transaction code, and as such Apple don’t share your bank details with merchants at all. We’re proud to introduce the inclusion of this method of payment into our App as we aim to make the ticket-buying process as quick, easy and safe and as it can be for Skiddle customers.
Apple Pay joins these other Skiddle App features:
- Artist Tracking – receive alerts when your favourite artists announce shows near you
- Remind Me – receive a push notification when an event you’ve expressed an interest in is about to go on sale
- Booking Fee free tickets on participating events
- Tickets all stored in one place
- Spotify and Uber integration
- Easy to use event search covering the entire UK
- Personalised event recommendations
Apple Pay joins the previously integrated Android Pay which has been a successful feature of the App since the beginning of the year. Read more about Android Pay on the Skiddle App here.
