Amazon India and BookMyShow on Monday entered into a partnership where customers can now book movie tickets on the e-commerce website. As per reports, it is a 5-year deal.
"Our aim is to simplify the lives of our customers in every possible way - as they shop, pay bills or seek other services. This partnership is yet another step on this ongoing journey," Mahendra Nerurkar, Director, Amazon Pay said in a statement.
Amazon.in users can log onto the app or mobile site to book their tickets from the ‘movie tickets' category under ‘shop by category' or the Amazon Pay tab.
Customers will get downloadable movie tickets and see all Amazon Pay transactions in one place, all within the same Amazon app.
All the cinemas and theatres listed on Amazon.in for this category will be powered exclusively by BookMyShow.
Customers will also get access to BookMyShow's content offerings, including movie reviews, ratings, synopsis, posters and other offerings.
"This partnership will further extend the convenience of digital transactions on Amazon.in to the ‘Movie Tickets' category making the experience absolutely seamless for all consumers," Ashish Hemrajani, Founder and CEO, BookMyShow added.
With the integration on Amazon.in, Amazon customers do not need to leave the Amazon app to buy a movie ticket.
Users can pay conveniently using their Amazon Pay balance, Amazon Pay ICICI Credit Card, Amazon Pay UPI or other digital payment methods.
Amazon also stated that its credit card users in India will get a 2% cashback on each movie ticket purchase. Further, the users will be offered a cashback of up to Rs 200 on each ticket purchase until November 14.
