Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Zoom app is now used not only for working video conferencing, but also for participating in classes and seminars. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Zoom plans to capitalize on the new trend.
The company has begun beta testing a new service called OnZoom, which allows Zoom users to host and monetize online events.
For users of applications such as Eventbrite and Meetup, these capabilities are already familiar. As a participant, you will find seminars, classes and other activities in the new app. You will be able to participate directly through Zoom and pay with your credit card or PayPal account. You also have the option to gift tickets to your friends and family for OnZoom events.
It should be noted that at this time, only Zoom paid account users will be able to host and monetize virtual events. The company told NBC News that beta testing will run until at least the end of 2020.
Zoom is by no means the first company to try to capitalize on this concept. For example, last September, Google Area 120 released the Fundo app, which gives YouTube users the ability to host paid online events.
