Ticketmaster To Offer Apple Pay Support

LIVE NATION's TICKETMASTER announces an APPLE PAY option with the latest update to its iOS app.
APPLE PAY checkout requires a single touch — without the need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. TICKETMASTER users will be able to make quick, convenient and secure purchases using APPLE PAY with TOUCH ID.
"We work hard to deliver simple and secure ways for fans to purchase tickets to the events they love, and offering APPLE PAY makes our industry-leading app the most convenient, flexible and secure way to buy," said TICKETMASTER N.A. President JARED SMITH.
APPLE PAY's integrated hardware, software and services combine to create a seamless, intuitive and simple purchase experience, offering both security and privacy since actual credit or debit card numbers are not stored on the device nor on APPLE servers. Instead, a unique DEVICE ACCOUNT NUMBER is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the SECURE ELEMENT on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code, instead of using the security code from the back of the purchaser's credit card.
APPLE PAY is available in the TICKETMASTER APP on the iPHONE 6 and iPHONE 6 Plus, as well as iPAD AIR 2 and iPAD MINI 3.
