Vendini Releases First Ever Mobile App to Serve Friend-to-Friend (F2F) Ticketing MarketWalletini Set to Advance the Way People Share and Attend Live Events (July 24, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/24/12 -- Walletini, the first free mobile application to manage tickets to concerts, sporting events, performing arts, and other live entertainment events, has been released today by Vendini. This innovative app is the first of its kind to address the rapidly growing need in the Friend-to-Friend (F2F) ticketing market, the unserved market between primary and secondary ticketing where fans purchase tickets for their friends. Building upon mobile and social technologies, Walletini assists fans in buying, transferring tickets to their friends, getting paid back, and entering shows.
The convenience and solution Walletini provides is unmatched in the ticketing industry. Using Walletini, fans can now buy, store, and transfer any entertainment tickets via their smartphones. This free app also makes it easy to get paid back from friends as it allows you to request and receive money right from your mobile device. The app also eliminates the hassle of keeping track of paper tickets as users are able to simply show up at an event and have their tickets scanned at the door from their phones.
GO WITHOUT WORRY.
Walletini makes F2F ticketing a breeze. You'll never have to worry about losing, misplacing or forgetting your tickets.
You can buy more tickets to the hottest shows before they sell out, knowing you can easily electronically transfer them to your friends, and ensure that everybody is sitting together.
GET PAID BACK.
No more issues with being the "money enforcer." Walletini lets you request and receive money back for tickets you purchased, all from your smartphone.
See which events your friends are going to. Plan to meet up before the event.
Removing the hassle from ticket buying ensures more tickets will be sold by venues. And since the tickets are electronic, venues will know all the patrons coming to their events, to keep patrons updated on future events.
"What these guys did was genius," said Reuben Buck, Operator of The Parlor Collection in Bellevue, Washington. "Our patrons want to focus on the event, not hassle with ticket buying. Walletini has taken the stress out of ticket buying and the complete distribution of the tickets, which makes our job so much easier."
"We wanted to create a platform that makes it easy to store tickets on your mobile device, transfer them to your friends, and use them for entry," said Mark Tacchi, CEO and Founder of Vendini. "Because it's a cross platform app, you can transfer tickets to your friends regardless of what smartphone they're using."
