Online Ticketing Business, HELP!
« on: October 05, 2014, 02:31:30 AM »
I'm planning to start my own ONLINE ticketing business. I've tried it for our own family na kasi, we have credit card and internet so kami nalang talaga ang nagbbook ng ticket then just print it.

Yung IDEA ko sana ay pwede magpost ang customers ng preferred location and date nila etc then by that, I'll update them always if may mababang price or sale talaga. (Ofcourse may patong, this is business.)

QUESTIONS:

1. Swak kaya sa mga ibang tao na ako nalang ang magbbook sa kanila?
2. Okay ba ang ticketing lang? Walang tour within the location etc.
3. How would I be known to several people using facebook page? (Bukod sa advertisement)
4. Magiging stress lang kaya ito kaysa kumita? Will I just waste my time if I do this?
5. May kailangan ba akong legal papers na gagamitin for this online ticketing business?

AND I need advice, comment, suggestions.

Thank you  ;D

Hi! You have to legalize the business, sis.  Register your biz name with DTI, get a business permit from your city hall, and register with BIR.  Most potential clients ask if the biz is legal prior to paying and some would ask for official receipts, especially now when we hear reports of travel scams.  It's not enough to say you are, you have to have proof you're operating legally.

As for ticketing, note that you need to have your own system (or GDS as know in the travel industry) or you can also be sky agents/partners of airlines like Cebu Pac and Air Asia Zest. There's a bond, of course, but you need to have the permits for this.  Then you can get access to rates or features not accessible to the public in the airlines' website.  Kasi, sis, madami naman naka subscribe sa e-newsletters and alerts ng airlines so they know when there's a promo na.
