Allow Customers to Upload Files at Checkout (Proof of Vaccination, Liability Waivers, Permits, etc.)

If you have ever hosted an event that requires proof of ID or even a vaccination card, you are likely to understand the hassles that come with the process.

When you want to streamline collecting additional data, images, or files from customers, you can do so within minutes using the latest tool released by Purplepass.


Purplepass introduces new tool for uploading files

The File Upload tool by Purplepass was designed with convenience in mind. With today’s various travel restrictions and limitations for COVID-19 and vaccine status, the mere thought of planning and coordinating an event can cause you to feel stressed out.

With the File Upload tool from Purplepass, you can request customers to upload proof of vaccination, proof of a negative test, or any other type of information or identification that you request at checkout.


Ability to upload files at checkout (benefits)

Using the File Upload tool is extremely beneficial for those who are living under quarantine restrictions, or for those who are interested in taking additional precautions when hosting events or requesting proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

Some more notable benefits of the File Upload tool for event planners include:

  • The ability to request proof of identification, vaccination, or a negative COVID-19
  • Collecting waivers for sporting events or special activities
  • Collecting photos/images for badges and volunteers
  • Access to all uploaded files in advance (less to do at the gate and fewer interactions)
  • The ability to collect, store, and organize all files that have been uploaded and shared with you in one central location.
