Online ticket marketplace TicketNetwork.com has announced that the Google Wallet can now be used as a payment option for customers using its desktop and mobile websites.
Google Wallet is a mobile payment system that allows customers to safely store their credit and debit cards and loyalty cards. When placing orders on TicketNetwork.com, customers no longer have to enter their payment information manually. They just press the ‘Buy with Google’ button at checkout; they now will be able to add their billing and shipping information with a single click.
“We’re so excited to introduce Google Wallet as a new payment option for our customers,” said Danielle Metcalf, site operations manager for TicketNetwork.com. “The security and ease-of-use of Google Wallet makes it a perfect fit for our website, as we constantly strive to provide a better ticket buying experience for our customers.”
