The tie-up aimed at enabling TicketsMarche’s customers to finance and pay for their ticket purchases through valU and PayTabs Egyptaccording to a press release published on Zawya.

In addition, the collaboration will also allow valU exclusive customers to pre-access events in sports, art, theatre, and comedy.

valU CEO Walid Hassouna said: “With tourism ramping up and COVID-19 restrictions lifting, the country’s entertainment industry is bustling with events that are bringing people together once again.
