Fast Checkout. No Surprises.
Surprise parties are fun. Surprise fees are not. In fact, surprise fees during checkout are the #1 reason for cart abandonment, according to the Baymard Institute. That’s why AudienceView Professional always puts you in control of your fees. And now, our new optimized checkout experience provides a static cart summary for patrons along their entire purchase journey. All items, fees, and taxes visible all throughout checkout. No surprises.
Nobody likes lines, wait rooms, or lengthy online checkouts. Research done by ElasticPath shows that 20% of online consumers will actually abandon a checkout if it takes more than one-minute. That’s why our new optimized checkout experience is simplified with a 3-step progress bar, and makes purchasing a ticket fast and intuitive. And with 8% of online live-event ticket purchasers stating a frustrating checkout experience as the reason for abandoning their cart, our optimized checkout increases conversion and attendee satisfaction.
Higher Buyer Confidence, Higher Conversion Rate
Consumers demand flexibility and peace-of-mind, now more than ever. Whether it’s the travel, retail, or live-event industry – consumers want to know they’re covered if something unforeseen happens. It’s no wonder then that live-event ticket protection demand has grown 200% since pre-covid, according to a recent STAR report, and orders for ticket protection on AudienceView Professional have grown more than 300%. In fact, the 2022 STAR Report, which analyzes live-event trends, included embedded ticket protection as their second most critical recommendation for live-event venues.
Given this, AudienceView is excited to launch a new third-party partnership with XCover, by Cover Genius. Cover Genius is the insuretech for embedded protection, licenced and regulated in 60+ markets and all 50 states, and integrated into over 70 ticketing companies’ checkout flows.
