According to the agreement, the said Easyshops have been installed with a personalized Bookme.pk e-Ticketing portal. The new system will help walk-in customers to book and pay for their bus and movie tickets on the spot. The service provides immediate delivery of e-Tickets for bus and movies by email or SMS code.

Pakistan’s first and leading branchless banking service Easypaisa and Tameer Microfinance Bank entered into an agreement with Bookme.pk in November last year, to expedite mutual customers in the trouble-free and on the spot booking and purchase of bus and movie tickets. Within only two months of consorting with Easypaisa, Bookme.pk has started to process an average of 1500–2000 tickets per day and extended their teams to Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad to deliver tickets to their customer addresses.

While commenting on the progress, Irfan Wahab Khan, Deputy CEO and CMO, Telenor Pakistan said:

“This valuable partnership between Telenor Pakistan and Bookme.pk is fully aligned with our vision of facilitating people through inclusive digital solutions. This enablement will not only bring ease and convenience to Telenor Pakistan and Bookme.pk users, but also generate alternative revenues for the thriving e-commerce industry associated with both the financial players, including hundreds of Easyshops across the country. We are committed to forging new partnerships between various service sectors to bring ease and access to our customers to realize our dream of digital inclusion.”

Faizan Aslam, CEO Bookme.pk said:

“Bookme.pk and Telenor Pakistan’s partnership will bring greater convenience as many people do not have credit cards but still want to buy tickets online. We can now reach out to each and every customer across Pakistan who wants a ticket from Bookme.pk. This is just a beginning of a great partnership with much more to come.”

In addition, the collaboration will be aiding the endorsement of e-commerce in Pakistan by generating and increasing awareness about the potential of digital financial services in Pakistan’s emerging e-commerce market other than escalating the outreach of the service. The consolidation of this partnership is a part of Telenor Pakistan’s vow to assist its customers.
