PayPal, Moshtix, Illusive and EMI have joined forces to bring the first ever ‘Cashless Concert’ to Australian music lovers. The unique show will take place at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Thursday April 7th and tickets are only available through the Moshtix mobile site (accessed by typing moshtix.com.au into any internet enabled mobile handset) exclusively through PayPal.

The show is the first of Illusive’s ONE TAKE pop-up parties and will be headlined by UK rap sensation and emerging global phenomenon, Tinie Tempah. The two times Brit Award winner is known for his breakthrough album Disc-Overy which features the hit singles Invincible (feat. Kelly Rowland), Written In The Stars, Pass Out and platinum selling Swedish House Mafia collaboration Miami 2 Ibiza.

The inaugural One Take show will also feature Melbourne duo Diafrix, DJ Izm (Bliss N Eso) plus an array of top Sydney DJs promising to be a monumental affair.



The concept of the cashless concert is simple: fans use their mobile devices to access tickets to the show, they pay using their PayPal account, then receive their ticket which they then present to gain entry. Thus, totally cashless and all via a mobile device.

Forging the way in M-commerce, the PayPal Mobile Express Checkout is designed to improve the mobile shopping experience. It allows merchants to benefit from a one-stop payment service enabling them to sell to millions of mobile shoppers. It also offers a seamless customer experience which is vital with smaller screens and keyboards. No cumbersome data entry is involved; in just a few clicks the transaction is done. The PayPal Mobile Express Checkout also offers unprecedented security. All payments are secure, personal financial information is never shared with the recipient and PayPal confirms by e-mail all payment details as soon as money is sent. Moreover, all PayPal payments are protected by their industry leading proprietary fraud models. Each payment is confirmed by a PIN or password, so users need not worry if they lose their phone.

By purchasing tickets through Moshtix’s easy-to-use, optimised site, ticket buyers have the ability to have their Moshtix purchased tickets scanned straight from their mobile when arriving at a venue. Other key mobile site features include:

– The integration of links to activate Google Maps that provides directions on how to get to particular venues.
– Sharing Moshtix events with friends through Facebook and Twitter
– Forwarding tickets to friends straight from the handset

For ease of access after a ticket buyer purchases tickets to an event, they are sent an SMS that links straight to their mobile barcode ticket. After purchasing a ticket through moshtix.com.au on the mobile, a user’s barcoded ticket is stored in their Moshtix account for easy access. When purchasing multiple tickets, users also have the option to send individual tickets to friends.
