Overview

Enable fast access to Event Tickets by using the Google Wallet API. The Google Wallet API lets your customers add event tickets to Google Wallet on their phones, which provides easy access at the right time. By using Google Wallet, you can enable reminder notifications on the day of your event as well.

Saving Event Tickets in Google Wallet also eliminates clutter and enables faster access. To find the ticket, users simply need to open up the Google Wallet app, swipe up, and tap the one they want to use.

Developers have the flexibility to choose between two methods of redemption based on what works for them:

  • Barcode scanning: If your event locations have barcode scanners only, use this method of redemption for the event tickets.
  • NFC tap: If your event locations have NFC-tappable terminals, you can select Smart Tap integration for the event tickets. We have a selected list of terminal providers that support Google's Smart Tap protocol. Check our help center to confirm whether your terminal provider is certified.
Get started with our hands on Codelab for Web and Android, or start by choosing the right integration for you. The right integration for you depends on your specific requirements and is mostly driven by how you wish to reach your customers.
