SeatGeek uses Spreedly to store credit card data while remaining Level 1 PCI Compliant. People visit SeatGeek to purchase event tickets from one of their hundreds of affiliate companies. SeatGeek’s goal has always been to allow the user to buy tickets in a seamless way without leaving the SeatGeek check out, while still being able to take advantage of each of their affiliate’s inventory.
Before integrating with Spreedly two-and-a-half years ago, SeatGeek didn’t have a system for storing payment information, due in part to the daunting processes involved with Level 1 PCI compliance. That meant users had to enter their payment information each and every time they visited the SeatGeek site – not an ideal situation, particularly for retaining regular customers.
Russell D’Souza, SeatGeek’s founder, wanted to find a more elegant payment solution for his users, and that’s where Spreedly came in.
