Turn Every Email into a Ticket Booking Interface

Turn Every Email into a Ticket Booking Interface

From the moment you receive a promotional email with a flight discount, to the time it takes to book a flight, a lot of things can happen! For customers on a tight schedule, the process is even more exacerbated. Most branded travel booking sites have tried to streamline and simplify the process somewhat, but the entire experience could still be vastly improved.

By delivering a cohesive app-like experience in an email, we’re able to seamlessly control and manage the ticket booking process directly in an email message. This makes it easier and more convenient for customers to not only engage with the email, but interact with it as well. By having the ability to input their trip details (their destination, time and date of their flight, and so on) directly in the email, as well as conducting searches and receiving real-time results all within the email itself, email suddenly catapults into the 21st century.

The search functionality further extends and improves the overall customer experience by allowing far greater customization to fit different use cases and demographics. For example, for price-conscious travelers, the Fare Finder tool allows them to easily search for the cheapest fares. Because the information is available in real-time, customers never have to spread themselves too thin trying to find discounted tickets or better deals across a handful of “ticket comparison” websites.

Finally, there’s the option of seamless payment. By integrating Google Pay and Apple Pay, the checkout process becomes faster, easier and more convenient for the user. In addition, e-commerce best practices like abandoned cart notifications and promo coupons in exchange for feedback or reviews have also been integrated.

And flight tickets are just the beginning. With our interactive email solution, the opportunities are wide open for various platforms to take advantage of this technology. From train tickets to concert tickets and other ticketing-based use cases. A centralized solution is now at your fingertips!

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDS

SECURE

Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
