Notify Presenter Policy (NPP)

For us, every event presenter is equally important, whether you sell 10 or 100,000 tickets for your event. If your attendee is having doubts, we’ll send an email to you requesting clarification on the same and then your ticket buyer will be updated about it. This ensures 100% customer satisfaction. We re-direct ticket buyers for Refund issue to you and also send you an intimation email about the same. If your ticket buyer wants to buy tickets for an already sold-out event, we immediately inform you about it. This has helped our presenters to boost their online ticket sales even after an event is sold out and generate additional revenue.


Lastly, your event should be seamless during the check-in and ticket validation process where you cannot afford hiccups. YapScan turns all your event managers smartphones into a fully functional ticket validating device that can be used for scanning e-ticket barcodes, cross-checking names, e-ticket numbers, or simply scrolling through the attendee list.
