Visa and StubHub announced Monday (March 13) that they are enhancing their partnership by offering a series of events, promotions and offers for customers looking to buy tickets to live events.
In a press release, the companies said that soon StubHub fans will be able to use Visa Checkout on the StubHub mobile app.
“StubHub has been a great partner, and we are thrilled even more consumers will be able to get their tickets on StubHub using Visa Checkout online or in [the] app,” said Sam Shrauger, senior vice president, digital solutions, Visa, in the press release announcing the new promotions. “As Visa Checkout approaches 20 million consumer enrollments, we look forward to our continued partnership and bringing consumers an easier way to pay on the StubHub mobile app.”
Earlier this year, Visa and StubHub announced plans to introduce benefits for StubHub fans, including seat upgrades when consumers use Visa Checkout to pay for tickets via StubHub. In April of this year, fans will get a discount, one Visa said is significant, when they purchase tickets on StubHub using Visa Checkout.
“We’re always looking for unique and new ways to give our fans the best possible experience — whether that’s putting them in the center of the action, or giving them an easier way to pay, like Visa Checkout,” said Glenn Lehrman, global head of communications, StubHub, in the press release. “This is just the beginning of how our two brands will continue cutting-edge collaboration and strive to make exclusive experiences more seamless.”
To celebrate the convergence of technology and music in Austin this week, Visa said Visa Checkout and StubHub will host a private concert at the Everywhere Lounge, as StubHub gears up for their music showcase series in Austin. The StubHub “LIVE: Sound Stage” will feature more than 28 performers over three days: Wednesday, March 15 – Friday, March 17.
