See Tickets has linked up with online payments system PayPal to offer an easy way to get money back from friends or family for a gig, show or festival ticket.

See Tickets now offers the cost of group purchases to be divided between friends and family through its new ‘Split It with PayPal’ feature

After ordering the tickets, customers can select the ‘Split It with PayPal’ button, which will redirect them to the login page for the payment site.

The person that placed the order can simply enter their family and friends’ email addresses or mobile numbers, and instructions will be sent to each person to pay their share of the cost.

PayPal’s research reportedly shows that more than a third of Britons said that they’d rather have to cut back than chase up a small debt from their friends or family.

Rob Wilmshurst, chief executive at See Tickets, said: “We are always looking at ways we can make the ticket buying experience smarter and easier for our customers. 

“As many people buy for groups of friends and family, we are happy to launch this useful feature with our long-standing partner, PayPal.”

There is no charge to send the request and it’s free for friends to send money via their PayPal balance, bank or debit card.
