Amazon India has collaborated with BookMyShow allowing users to book movie tickets directly from the online shopping store.
A new category called Movie Tickets’ has been added under the Shop By Category section on Amazon and is available for both Prime users and non-Prime members.
Also, users will also be able to get access to reviews and ratings. However, the new option is only available on the mobile app or website and has currently not rolled out on the desktop website.
“We are happy to partner with BookMyShow to open out-of-home movie entertainment as a new category on Amazon.in. Our aim is to simplify the lives of our customers in every possible way – as they shop, pay bills or seek other services. This partnership is yet another step on this ongoing journey,” said Mahendra Nerurkar, Director, Amazon Pay.
Upon selecting the option, you get familiar queries that you would see when you use BookMyShow for the first time. Users will be asked to select their region, exact zone, and preferred movies then you can select the movie theatre, the time of the show, and cost per seat.
You can pay online using any of the payment options including Amazon Pay balance, Amazon Pay ICICI Credit Card, Amazon Pay UPI and other forms of digital payment.
ICICI Amazon Pay credit card customers can get up to 2% cashback as monthly statement rewards and as a part of the launch offer, Amazon is offering 20% cashback of up to Rs 200 on movie ticket bookings but is valid only for today.
