Ordered some baseball tickets online early last week. There were a few options regarding both payment and receipt of tickets.
Payment options: credit card, bank transfer, pay at 7-eleven
Receipt options: by mail, pickup at 7-eleven, e-ticket sent to smart phone
I may be forgetting an option or two, but the great thing is that it was like a matrix. You could pay by bank transfer and have them mailed. You could pay by credit card and pick them up at 7-eleven. And so on.
On my way to the wine store to pick up our eggs — yes you read that right — I stopped in at a 7-eleven, gave her the order number, which the woman entered into the cash register keypad and a machine a few meters away printed out our tickets. I signed a receipt and was on my merry way.
Whole transaction took less than 5 minutes.
