What are the benefits of using tickets for electronic wallets?

The main advantage of electronic wallet tickets is their ease of use. All you need is to click on the link that can be found in a confirmation letter, and the ticket will be saved and ready for use. You don’t need to print the ticket and there is less chance that you will forget to bring it to the event. One very important point is that the use of such tickets is more environmentally friendly, like paper, printer ink and electricity are not used in contrast to a regular ticket.

The situations you shouldn’t use the ticket for electronic wallets

The only contraindication is that your ticket scanner cannot read the barcodes from the smartphone screen.
