TicketSocket has announced an omnichannel ticketing and payment system that works with Square for integration of both advanced online and day-of box office ticket sales and payments.

The new EMV-certified Box Office iPad app allows event organisers, promoters, venues, attractions and others to use TicketSocket as their centralised ticketing and registration system that is securely integrated with Square payment devices.

Event attendees can pay online via credit card or in person via chip credit card, cash or Apple Pay, while event organisers and venues are protected with the PCI DSS-approved, EMV-compliant Square payments solution.

Event and venue organisers also gain 100 per cent control of their earnings through same day deposits through Square.

“For years the ticketing industry has been plagued by the lack of omnichannel payment solutions for both box office and online sales,” said Mark Miller, co-founder and chief executive, TicketSocket.

“We’re thrilled to be working closely with fellow innovator Square to fill the need for a fully integrated, chip compatible system.”
