For all the movie lovers, online movie ticket booking has been a blessing in disguise. To watch action and romance, week after week, on the big screen these people have been standing and waiting in queues for years – whether it rains or there’s a storm, chilly cold waves or blazing heat. Imagine for these cine lovers what a blessing it has been the conception of getting their tickets online. No rush, no standing in queues, no stress about getting the first day first show tickets anymore because with online movie ticket booking one can book in advance. Seats can be booked 2- 3 days prior to the show. Tickets are booked the cashless way – using the credit card or debit card. No botheration if one doesn’t have a credit card – he can use Netbanking and pay for the tickets online. And if your bank still doesn’t support online banking, no concerns – because you can register with one of the reputed and safer aggregator like Phonepay, Mobikwik or Paytm and use their online wallet service to make payments. These aggregators are supported by hi-tech systems – software and hardware –so that financial transactions can be processed within seconds in the one of the most protected environment.
With simplified steps getting the tickets booked is not a major deal. One just needs to select the name of the movie and the show. The next step is to select the seating from unoccupied seats and then make the payments. Once the payment is done, the confirmation is sent via a SMS on registered phone number as well as an email on the registered email id. The ticket is then sent by whatsapp to the phone number. These tickets can be physically collected too from the box office counter on showing the credit/debit card that has been used for movie ticket booking. In case the payment was done via Netbanking, the person needs to show the SMS or email confirmation along with his Identity proof. In case the ticket cannot be collected, you can still enter the auditorium by getting the emailed ticket scanned by a scanning device.
The online booking is not limited to booking movie tickets alone. Using the service provider’s website or an aggregator website or App, a user can pay utility bills like electricity, gas, and water; pay insurance bills; pay for EMI against loans taken from banks; recharging DTH services, prepaid mobile, metro services; book bus tickets, train and air tickets; ordering food and more. The advantage of using an aggregator site is that one can conduct all these tasks from one centralized portal. Using the service provider’s site for online payments and booking means one would need to checkout every time from each operator’s site and open the new service provider’s website.
