Paytm recently reported that more than one lakh movie tickets are booked daily through its platform. It’s been four months since the company forayed into the entertainment space, and within a short span of time, it has managed to catch the eye balls of movie lovers.
One of the key reasons for the significant initial success of Paytm in the movie-ticketing domain has been the Pan India availability of movie screens on its platform. Currently, Paytm has over 2250 screens for which tickets can be booked online. This number will increase to 3000 screens in the coming months. Paytm’s list of tie-ups in the movie industry includes PVR, Cinepolis, Inox, Wave, Miraj, MovieTime, Gold Cinemas and multiple other chains & single screen theatres.
Speaking on this, Renu Satti, Vice President - Paytm said, “In just about four months since the launch of movie ticketing, Paytm is well on its way to become the country’s favorite mode of booking movie tickets. We are very pleased at the encouraging response to our efforts to serve the millions of movie lovers in India. Paytm will also bring offline single screens on its platform over a period of time. This will take the reach of Paytm deeper and further in this space, and also aid the theater owners in filling up seats.”
