Aimed at further facilitating its customers, Telenor Pakistan has extended its partnership with Bookme.pk through which Easyshops across the country will be equipped with the facility to issue online tickets for buses and movies in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad, with more support for more cities coming soon.
As per the terms of the agreement, the said Easyshops have been installed with a bespoke Bookme.pk e-Ticketing portal. The new system will enable walk-in customers to book and pay for their bus and movie tickets on the spot, completely eliminating the need to physically go to bus stands and cinemas, and stand in long queues. Already in place, the service features instant delivery of e-Tickets for bus and movies via email or SMS code which are shown to and accepted by respective cinema or bus service.
Bookme.pk and Telenor Pakistan’s partnership will bring greater convenience as many people do not have credit cards but still want to buy tickets online. We can now reach out to each and every customer across Pakistan who wants a ticket from Bookme.pk. – Faizan Aslam, CEO (Bookme.pk)
In November last year, Easypaisa entered into the agreement with Bookme.pk to facilitate mutual customers in the hassle-free and instant booking and purchase of bus and movie tickets. In just two months of partnering with Easypaisa, Bookme.pk has started to process an average of 1500–2000 tickets per day and expanded their teams to Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad to deliver physical tickets to their customer addresses. Furthermore, through Easypay solution, payments can now be collected through Easypaisa mobile accounts, credit/debit cards as well as cash payments at any Easypaisa shop.
The partnership will be facilitating the uptake of e-commerce in Pakistan by creating and enhancing awareness about the potential of digital financial services in Pakistan’s emerging e-commerce market besides increasing the outreach of the service.
