Registering and Starting a Ticket Shop

Registering and starting a Tixys shop is very easy. Just a few steps, and you can start selling tickets.

Who can register a Tixys shop?

Tixys is a booking engine for operators of long-distance and shuttle bus services, trains, ferries and small airlines. It is important that the company operating a Tixys shop is primarily responsible for all services offered. Therefore, agencies cannot open a Tixys shop.

What do you need to start?

Not much is required to start a Tixys shop. Of course, assuming that you already have some vehicles, and people to operate them.

In fact, all you really need to start selling tickets is a contract with one or more payment service providers supported by Tixys. A good start is a PayPal account.
