- Amazon has started selling movie tickets in India.
- This feature is available only on Amazon’s mobile app.
- This feature is available on both Amazon’s Android and iOS apps.
Earlier this year Amazon India launched flight booking feature in its mobile app in India. Now, nearly six months later, the Indian arm of the Seattle-based tech giant has introduced a brand new feature on its mobile app that allows users to book movie tickets using their Amazon mobile app in the country.
The feature as of now is available only on Amazon’s mobile app (both Android and iOS based apps). This means that you would not be able to book tickets using Amazon’s desktop based platform. As per a report by Gadgets 360, the new “Movie Ticket” category appears in the Shop by Category section of Amazon’s Android and iOS based apps. However, we were unable to find the feature in the app. Alternatively, you can tap on the Amazon Pay section in the app and scroll down and tap on the Book Movie Tickets on Amazon to book your movie tickets.
As a part of the launch offer Amazon is offering 20 per cent cash back, up to Rs 200, on movie ticket bookings. The cash back offer is valid between November 1, 2019 to November 14, 2019 and it will be credited as Amazon Pay Balance in the users’ Amazon accounts within three working days. The company has partnered with Book My Show to offer this feature.
To book tickets on your Amazon app,tap on Continue Booking option. Doing will open a page wherein you will be asked to select the cityof your choice. Once you do that you will be directed to a page where you can see a list of movies in two sections – In Cinemas and Coming Soon.
