FAQ by event Organisers.

How do we validate Tickets on entrance?
After purchasing a ticket, a user will immediately have the option to download a PDF ticket. All tickets contains a QR Code which you can scan on entrance with our free Ticket scanner app for Android↗ which you can download HERE↗/ HERE↗ Customers can also print tickets at home which you can also scan with the ticket scanner app.
1. The App needs Internet access to communicate with our website so that you can validate tickets. So you need to have data/be connected to a WIFI during the ticket scanning process. (A few hundred MBs of Data will do- The App alone uses less data.. a few kilobytes.)
2. After downloading the My Ticket Scanner App↗ , you need to send us the App ID (You can find the App ID by going to the app’s settings(Tap the three dots – top right) the ID (above legal section). Access to our site’s ticket data is only restricted to certain App IDs for extra security so if you try to scan tickets with an APP that is not white-listed, connection will be denied. Each application instance has its own unique ID string that can be copied from app’s main settings screen. Refer to the image below.
How to Improve Scanning Speed of the Application?
The common assumption here is that scanning speed depends on something that relates to QR-code decoding algorithm. In fact, the scanning itself is quite fast and takes no more than 100ms even on slow Android devices. The main bottleneck here is the quality of your network connection and latency.
Every time the QR-code ticket is scanned the app makes new query to our website’s database to retrieve the latest information about the ticket and its status. This step is mandatory because it ensures that no conflicts happen in case multiple application instances are used and the date is kept synchronized in live with our website server.
First, verify that your Internet connection is fast and stable.
What if two people try to use the same ticket on different entrances?
When you scan a ticket and click the “validate” button, its status is changed to “Validated”. When the second person tries to enter through different gate you will have a popup with a validated status meaning that ticket already used.
When and how will i get paid?

In which currency will i get paid USD / ZWL?
