It requires you to set up booths and selling points in strategic places. Also, you need some staffs to be at this points throughout the day. One problem of this approach – physical ticketing – is the inability to predict when customers will come. So, you waste a lot of time that you would invest elsewhere. Online ticketing helps you to avoid this time wastage. When you upload your tickets online, customers can buy at their convenience without interfering with your activities. This way you save your time and money.
