– Action movie or romantic comedy? Popcorn, nachos or sweets? Once you ́ve made your choice, you can now pay with your smartphone in all CinemaxX cinemas across Germany. As an industry pioneer, Germany’s best-known cinema chain is now introducing mobile payment with Yapital in all of its 29 locations. The final technical integration comes only weeks after the initial cooperation announcement. Movie lovers can now pay for their entire cinema experience – including tickets, snacks and drinks – quickly, easily and securely with the Yapital app on their mobile phones.
After successful registration, Yapital users simply scan a QR code with the Yapital app and click on 'Confirm' to receive their tickets, snacks and drinks at CinemaxX. The smartphone not only helps users find the right movie or get directions to the cinema, but since it ́s always within reach, it has now also become a convenient way to pay. And it gets even better: Instead of having to search their pockets for change, Yapital users can send
each other money in real time at no extra charge, ensuring that everyone gets their fair share of the sweets.
“Together with a highly valued partner, we have implemented what we announced a few weeks ago: Film fans now pay for their tickets and snacks at all German CinemaxX locations quickly, easily and securely with their mobile phones,” says Yapital’s Managing Director Karsten Cornelissen. “This makes Yapital the first mobile payment system in German cinemas. At the same time, it increases the number of acceptance points where consumers can pay with the Yapital app on their smartphones.”
CinemaxX Managing Director Carsten Horn adds: “Our motto is ́more than cinema ́, so naturally, a mobile payment solution like Yapital is a perfect match to offer our guests even better service when paying. We are therefore extremely pleased that we can now offer this solution at all locations.”
