Secondary ticketing site SeatGeek has announced their partnership with Google, allowing users the ability to add their tickets directly into Google Pay.
SeatGeek users now can add their purchased tickets into their Google Pay app, storing their ticket alongside credit cards and boarding passes. If more than one ticket is purchased, it’s possible to add each of them to the app with a single tap, rather than adding each separately.
“We’re thrilled about the SeatGeek integration. Now, it’ll be easier for people to store and use tickets for tons of events in the Google Pay app,” Product Manager for Google Pay, Ankit Prasad, said. “They’ll have access to everything they need, right on their phones.”
Dallas Gutauckis, Director of Mobile Engineering at SeatGeek, said SeatGeek has always “championed an open ecosystem for live events,” and this new partnership will allow fans to have another way to save and use their purchased tickets.
Here is an example of the user flow:
iPhone users also have the ability to add tickets to their Apple Wallet through SeatGeek.
This partnership follows SeatGeek’s integration with Snapchat earlier this year. While on the Snapchat app, users can purchase tickets and checkout through SeatGeek. Tickets are also available for sale directly through Facebook.
