Excitement built up this past weekend as the Barbados-born beauty, Rihanna, hit Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium stage on Sunday as part of her Diamonds World Tour. I was one of the over 67000 people in the sold out stadium fortunate enough to experience the singer perform live.
Among all the dancing, the hectic crowds and the long queues at the different bars, I will admit, it was tough to keep track of you cash, cellphones and other valuables and, as a result, some of my friends found themselves in the unfortunate predicament of having some of their valuables pick-pocketed or stolen.
Going to the concert, the last thing I wanted to do was lug around my handbag but it was something I had to do to avoid having to carry my cash on me, especially because I had no pockets and having cash is a must because of the drinks bars and food stalls available.
That got me thinking, how could we at Tutuka make the concert experience more pleasurable for those attending, without the worry of losing their cash through the events of the night?
As a concert organiser, I could benefit greatly from Tutuka’s online self-service option that allows the creation of instant closed loop prepaid accounts.
So now, instead of concert goers carrying cash on them at the concert, I could issue them with prepaid cards or codes printed on wrist bands which they could swipe at the bars or food stations, which allows them to control how much money they want to spend at the concerts and avoid the risk of having their cash stolen.
So how would I go about this?
- Firstly, I would visit the Tutuka website where I would sign up for the “Instant Prepaid Accounts of Any Type” option
- I would then complete my sign up/log in details
- From there, I can create, load and redeem closed loop* prepaid card accounts for whenever concert goers book their tickets
- And Voila! The prepaid process is both easy and beneficial with Tutuka
Now as a concert organiser, through this process, I can also issue prepaid drinks or food vouchers to ticket buyers as part of competitions or as complimentary gifts, making any concert just that more enjoyable for you
*closed loop cards are those issued by a specific merchant and can only be redeemed at that same merchant.
