Built specifically for the Nigerian market, PayPass is a web platform aimed at making events ticketing easy. The platform was launched on 15th of May, 2017 by Funsho Olaniyi and Joshua Igba.
How it works
Buying tickets for any event is made possible in 3 simple steps; users select from a range of events, choose event ticket type and then go ahead to make payment. As for those looking to organise an event, they simply create an account on the platform, specify event details, ticket type and any other necessary details to go live on the platform.
PayPass also makes it possible for users to hire and/or add promoters to their events. Also, in development is a feature that will allow individuals invite other users to help sell tickets via a unique link, and returns will be paid directly to the marketer. The founders believe this will help them to penetrate the market.
PayPass is not alone in this space as competes against the likes of EventBrite and AriyaTickets. It is however hoping to leverage its supposed better user experience and lower rates to remain competitive in the market.
