SamaPass, an online portal dedicated to both private experiences such as a concert in a restaurant or to mega-conferences attracting several thousand participants, is on a mission to transform online ticketing in Africa. SamaPass allows organizers to publish their experiences and track ticket sales in real time, build community loyalty and boost visibility while remaining focused on their core business – like organizing, training and networking among others.
In Africa, accessing online booking platforms and obtaining digital tickets directly is a complicated business. SamaPass allows users to buy their tickets online using their credit cards, money transfers (via Wari or Joni) on smartphones or even via mobile money (via MTN Money, Orange Money and other platforms). SamaPass allows users to make payments via the payment solution they use each day. It is therefore a secure and easy to use solution directly from your mobile phone.
“We help organizers sell tickets for concerts or even cooking lessons online. Super easy to use, we allow participants to buy their tickets via credit cards, money transfers (eg Wari) or even via mobile money (via MTN Money or Orange Money)… Our solution is both for private events such as a private concert in a restaurant or for mega-conferences with several thousand participants,” states the firm on its website.
Founded in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, but with offices in France, the platform targets Africans residing within the continent as well as the 15 million African diaspora in Europe.
“These people give life to a rich variety of experiences via cultural events or activities that are just waiting to be seen by as many people as possible. It is to meet this need for visibility and contribute to local dynamism that SamaPass, the international ticketing agency for a changing Africa, was born. After winning over more than 300 organizers with its events-related ticketing solution, SamaPass is expanding its online presence by offering a complete range of African experiences to share,” states the firm in media release.
