Cross-site Sales allows POS operators to sell tickets for sessions at nearby sites, as well as their own cinema.
With Cross-site Sales, your patrons can easily purchase tickets for sessions at another of your circuit's nearby cinemas if your own sessions have sold out or if you are not showing a particular film or format at your cinema.
For patrons who like to make ticket purchases in advance, Cross-site Sales provides the freedom to buy tickets at one location and see the film at another.
Making a cross-site sale
Cross-site sales are treated like paid bookings in POS. When you view sessions for a site other than your own, the POS order window opens in booking mode. When you complete a sale, you are prompted to enter booking details for the customer.
The booking for a cross-site sale is considered to be collected after tickets have printed, so if you search for a Cross-site Sales booking at the destination site, it will only appear in the results when Display All Bookings is selected.
