For the second year in a row, the E-money module of JPurse was used on Rockvillage, a luxurious camping during the festival of Rock Werchter. It was another success, just like last year's edition. No problems were encountered during 5 days of running in a live environment.
JPurse takes care of the check-in procedure, linking every (registered) guest to an account with a balance, which is spendable with a Rockvillage card. If people bought money vouchers on the webshop, their balance was automatically credited with the voucher amount during check-in. If they did not buy money vouchers, they were able to credit their account at the load point. Either by cash or by bank card. If they wanted to get something to drink or to eat, they just had to scan their card to pay for their purchases, and their balance was edited. It's as simple as that, but it's very effective and convenient. With the mobile app, guests were able to see their transaction history and balance, but also block their card in case of a lost card. Sales reports were handed over to the organisation, which is useful for marketing and planning purposes for next year's edition.
It is safe to say that it was a very nice and sunny edition. On to next year!
