the power and approach of an ecommerce retailer
The Ticket Factory operates in a rapidly changing world, where customers demand the best. Its team of in-house developers are passionate about driving new ideas and being at the cutting edge of innovation.
As ecommerce specialists, it is critical to ensure that speed of sale and ease of purchase is seamless for its customers. In 2015, The Ticket Factory launched payment through PayPal to reduce the payment steps for buyers; order tracking to better manage customer expectations; and fluid designs that enable customers to enjoy a better buying experience via any of their devices.
Most recently, and in an industry-leading move, The Ticket Factory has partnered with user-led initiative the Access Card - the first ticket agent to do so – to offer disabled customers the same ease of online booking as everyone else.
