Online shopping website, Kaymu Uganda is set to compete in the electronic ticketing industry in Uganda.
The platform that connects buyers and sellers to transact online is now allowing events companies to sell tickets as well on its platform. The company is teasing the feature with the Blankets & Wine event happening on 3rd May according to a tweet posted on the website’s Twitter handle;

Kaymu will directly compete with Easyticket, Pearl guide, Payway Uganda, Etikiti and of course Eventbrite among other electronic events and ticketing services currently active in Uganda we listed previously.
One thought on “Online shopping site Kaymu Uganda launches ticketing service on its platform”
I beg to be corrected, Kaymu is selling paper tickets that are going to be hand delivered not E-tickets! Yes Easy tickets is selling E-tickets but not Kaymu. There is a much much big difference between E-Tickets and hard copy paper tickets! E-stands for electronic, it’s like calling snail mail in old school Post Office Box, E-mail!!! Etikiti is not a serious E-ticketing platform, let alone they have a poor web UI design(not to mention very old events still posted on their site!). I think the list given above is missing out one new competitor (who has not had a chance to profiled by most local Tech blogs), that is Smart Tickets. Here is the link to their website https://smartkts.com. As per the time of writing this comment, they had two events they were selling E-tickets for, most notably Guitar Maestros 2 -by Qwela. They also have demo event for those who want to see first hand how true mobile E-tickets should look like if you don’t mind parting with UGX 500 that is as you test their live service. Go ahead test and then critic this platform, i think given a chance, it will be a game changer! Mobile tickets delivered to the phone not email is the future and is more convenient.
