New Zealand independent ticketing platform Eventfinda has teamed up with buy now, pay later provider Laybuy.

In a move to make events more accessible for Australian and New Zealand event goers, the partnership will allow ticket-holders to spread the cost of their purchases across six weeks, interest-free.

All organisers, promoters and venues ticketing their event with Eventfinda can offer the Laybuy option, appealing to customers through greater payment flexibility. Promoters and event organisers can also choose to pass on the small Laybuy transaction fee to customers.

Gary Rohloff, Laybuy’s co-founder and managing director, said: “Not only does it make it easier for more fans to get to events, but this partnership also delivers benefits to event promoters and organisers as they won’t need to wait for payment because when someone pays with Laybuy they’ll receive their full payment for the tickets from Laybuy straight away.

“As a result, this partnership is a win-win for both fans and event organisers. We make it easier to purchase tickets while also providing promoters with an interest-free and low-risk credit option.”

James McGlinn, chief executive of Eventfinda, added: “We’re pleased to be able to offer this payment option to our ticketed events. The financial flexibility of Laybuy means ticket-holders can still enjoy the events they love while our event organisers receive payment in full.

“When ticket buyers select Laybuy as their payment option, account set-up is simple, subject to a credit and ID check. Their payment is processed normally through Eventfinda and split into six weekly interest-free payments.”
