Zoom has unveiled its new “event discovery and monetization” platform, OnZoom.
“Zoom proudly unveils the public beta for OnZoom, a one-of-a-kind online events platform and marketplace that supports – and salutes – the creativity, perseverance, and innovation that enabled so many people to adapt their in-person events to virtual or hybrid experiences,” the company said in a blog post.
Paid Zoom account users will be able to create, host, and monetize events. These include fitness classes, concerts, and improv shows.
According to Fox Business, businesses and entrepreneurs will be able to list and sell tickets for one-time events, event series, and drop-ins for up to 1,000 attendees. Attendees may pay using PayPal or a credit card. People can also purchase tickets as gifts.
“We were humbled and inspired by all of the amazing ways the world adapted to a literal shutdown of in-person events amid COVID-19,” the blog post also said. “When business owners, entrepreneurs, and organizations of all sizes had to find some way – any way – to stay the course and continue providing services to their customers, many turned to Zoom,” the post also stated. “OnZoom simplifies that experience,” it then added.
A public beta for OnZoom is now available. It lists events with admission fees that range from free to $50. In 2021, OnZoom will be available worldwide.
