StubHub Rolls Out Mobile Ticketing System

Comments Off

Print your tickets no more, because StubHub just launched its large-scale mobile ticketing system.

If you want to watch the San Francisco Giants today against Houston Astros, you no longer need to print ticket at home. All you need is a StubHub mobile ticket! Users who purchase from StubHub, via web or mobile app, can access mobile equivalents in the My Account section. Then, customers can show a bar code on their phones upon admittance to AT&T Park in lieu of printed ticket.

According to Mats Nilsson, StubHub’s director of product, they are the first ticketing company to introduce a fully functional large scale mobile ticketing system. And more than providing their customers a more convenient way in purchasing tickets, the company would also want to use the system to learn more about their buyers. However, StubHub’s mobile ticketing system has its own quirks. For one, app users need to zoom in and enlarge the bar code on a phone’s screen before presenting it upon check in.

But overall, the mobile ticketing system should appeal to StubHub buyers.
