A major challenge faced by many event companies is fraudulent/ duplicate tickets. Yapsody’s enhanced real-time QR Code scanning system efficiently identifies fake tickets, keeps the scalpers away and allows presenters to improve the attendee experience.
QR Code ticket scanners when used at multiple entry points, verifies QR Codes instantly and notifies you on your Yapsody account, ensuring every ticket is validated.
How the QR Code Ticket Scanner works
Once the attendee has booked the event, an email confirming the order is sent to them. The email consists of an E-ticket with a unique QR Code that contains information regarding the customer details, the ticket purchased and QR Code ID.
Attendees have an option to either print the ticket or to show the email receipt they received on their phone at the time of booking the event.
Ticket Scanning Process
What really happens when a ticket is scanned? The information from the QR Code is verified by sending it to the Yapsody account, ensuring the tickets are validated instantly.
Yapsody’s online event ticketing system offers its presenters a unique custom-designed app called “YapScan” specifically used to scan tickets. Features like photo scanning, laser scanning for quick entry and search-by-attendee-name and ticket number make the venue loading experience smooth and hassle-free.
