Festival Transaction Services, Inc. Teams with Visa to Launch a Cashless Financial Services Solution

Festival Transaction Services, Inc. (FTS) has teamed with Visa to launch a cashless financial services solution for fairs, festivals and other community-wide events. The new service will use prepaid Cards-as-Tickets for entry and for making purchases at the events. The service cuts ticketing costs, reduces cash handling risks and offers event organizers new opportunities for revenue and sponsorship. The Visa prepaid platform allows cards to be used for applications beyond general purpose payment, and FTS has taken an innovative approach to integrate processing, payments and promotion for the event community. FTS has integrated the prepaid card with the entry ticket sales process used by events. This integration allows FTS to provide ticketing services at very low to no cost, creating major savings for community events. FTS prepaid cards can also link promotional offers from events, sponsors, vendors and performers with the cards. "The ability to add promotions onto the cards-as-tickets provides value for consumers and gives the sponsors methods to measure the return on investment from sponsorship they have not had before. FTS is targeting 3-5 community events that sell admission tickets for significant sponsorship to assist with the change from cash, tokens or tickets to prepaid cards.
