Bridging the ticketing gap in China

At EventXtra, one of our missions is to enable you to host events for the Chinese audience smoothly with tech. A big, common challenge in China that we’ve found from many event organizers is online ticketing.

China is famous for being a pioneer towards a cashless society. Thanks to the high penetration of mobile devices, mobile payment is a prominent payment method to many Chinese consumers. According to data from Analysys, Alipay and WeChat Pay, the top two mobile payment providers in China, accounted for 93% of China’s market.

Sell your tickets through WeChat Pay

We are now proud to announce that our online ticketing form also accepts WeChat Pay, the second top mobile payment method in China. This is achieved with our official payment gateway partner Stripe.

Building an event registration form that collects money through WeChat Pay is extremely easy. The workflow is intuitive to users. Just scan the QR code and process payment on the user’s WeChat payment portal, your users could purchase tickets for your events.

Other than WeChat, we’ve been integrating with Alipay, which is known as the biggest mobile payment provider.
