Dec. 22, 2011

Fandango, the online movie ticket seller, has added PayPal as a payment option to its iPhone and Android mobile ticketing app. “We first offered PayPal as a payment option on the Web, and we’re now pleased to extend it to mobile,” says Rick Butler, Fandango Executive Vice President and General Manager. “More than 20 percent of Fandango’s ticket sales come from mobile devices and PayPal will offer an additional safe, easy and fast payment method for our moviegoers on the go.” The company said it has seen a 73 percent year-over-year increase in mobile ticket sales this year and, overall, 2011 was the best-performing year in its 11-year history, with record highs for its ticket sales, online and mobile traffic, advertising sales and the number of theater screens it represents across the country.
