Cinepolis, the Mexican chain of movie theatre, in association with FreeCharge have introduced a smarter way of making payments for the movie tickets and food and beverages. The services will commence from the second week of March. Now customers can use this service at 28 cities consisting of 38 Cinepolis theatres.
The moviegoers can now easily pay through their registered mobile numbers at FreeCharge at the card machines. FreeCharge is the first digital wallet partner for Cinepolis. By using the ‘On-The-Go-Pin’, the transaction can be completed in nearly 10 seconds.
FreeCharge’s Chief Operating Officer Govind Rajan said, “India is one of the fastest growing markets for movie digital payments. Partnership with Cinepolis is a huge opportunity to build the habit of digital payments. We are delighted to be the wallet partner for Cinepolis and are confident that together we will make payments swifter, more secure and rewarding for consumers. Our endeavour is to be the digital payment OS for a digital India and we plan to expand reach of the FreeCharge wallet to every POS offline and online.”
This smart system of payment is a solution for people who find difficulty in managing cash or fall short of it in many cases. The new system of payment is a rescue.
