Amazon India partners with BookMyShow to sell movie tickets on its platform. Notably, the new movie ticket booking option is currently only available on the mobile app or website and has currently not rolled out on the desktop website. Apart from booking movie tickets, users will also be able to get access to reviews and ratings.
Customers can now log onto the Amazon app or Amazon.in mobile site and book their tickets from the ‘movie tickets’ category under ‘shop by category’ or the Amazon Pay tab, the e-commerce firm said.
In order to gain market share in this category, Amazon would list theaters on its platform that will be powered by BookMyShow. Amazon said its credit card users in India will get a 2% cashback on each movie ticket purchase. Until November 14, it will also offer a cashback of up to Rs 200 on each ticket purchase.
