Vivaticket forms global partnership with Skrill

Vivaticket, a major international operator in the creation, production, marketing and management of integrated electronic ticketing and access control systems, announces a global partnership with Skrill, a digital payments leader which is part of Paysafe, a leading specialised payments platform.

Vivaticket sells more than 3.9 million tickets per year in 50 countries through responsive portals and mobile apps. Following the new agreement, Skrill will be available as a payment option at the checkout for customers buying tickets for leading sports teams and venues including basketball and football, iconic sporting events such as golf Ryder Cup matches, major theatres across the world, and live entertainment such as upcoming concerts from Andrea Bocelli, Foo Fighters, Avril Lavigne and Aerosmith. In addition, via Skrill’s Quick Checkout solution, Vivaticket customers will be able to pay by online bank transfer using Rapid Transfer, a bank transfer solution that allows merchants to receive funds in real-time from consumers in 19 countries.

Further to AC Milan’s recent announcement of Skrill as its Official Global Payments Partner, the team’s fans will also have the option of using Skrill’s digital wallet when buying match tickets and other AC Milan experiences through Vivaticket.

Founded in 2001, Skrill is a leader in digital payments. For businesses, Skrill’s Quick Checkout solution supports multiple payment methods including credit cards, prepaid cards and real-time banking solutions in over 100 countries. Merchants using Skrill are able to promote their services to millions of Skrill users around the world. Skrill also offers chargeback protection, to give merchants greater peace of mind that payments accepted using the Skrill platform will be received.

Luca Montebugnoli, Executive Chairman of Vivaticket, commented: “As an increasingly popular payment option, we are delighted to be able to offer Skrill as a way for customers to purchase more types of tickets and experiences. A convenient and smooth experience at the checkout is a vital part of our customer journey, and offering multiple payment methods is central to this.”

Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access at Paysafe, commented: “We are excited to be working with Vivaticket more broadly, supporting the expansion and success of its business by enabling a new and convenient way to pay. Skrill offers choice at the checkout, allowing businesses to add multiple local payment methods with a single integration, and giving consumers the ability to use their preferred option to make quick and secure payments.”
