SeatGeek adds payment options for fans with Affirm partnership

SeatGeek and payment network Affirm have agreed a new partnership to provide fans with more ways to pay when purchasing tickets for live music and entertainment. 

Music fans will be able to choose a payment option that suits them when selecting Affirm at checkout. Patrons can select options ranging from monthly payments to four interest-free bi-weekly payments. 

Geoff Kott, Affrim’s chief revenue officer, said: “Attending live events is at the top of many of our lists for 2022 and beyond, but so is sticking to a budget. Luckily, Affirm helps with both. 

“By partnering with SeatGeek, we are able to make it possible for more people to enjoy the experiences they want by delivering flexible and transparent payment options at checkout.”

Paula Segal, head of consumer product at SeatGeek, added: “The post-pandemic boom in online shopping brought a wave of innovations that resulted in a transformation of entire operations, and left customers wanting more control over their purchases.

“As SeatGeek continues to see an influx of fans wanting to get back out to enjoy the magic of live events, we’re paying closer attention to their feedback so we can evolve with this ever-changing consumer base — especially the younger generations. 

“By listening and incorporating their feedback, our partnership with Affirm aims to give fans the flexibility and ease-of-use they want and deserve.”
